Utility companies looking to get into the fuel cell business

Eversource and United Illuminating have awarded multiple projects, totaling 11.2 megawatts, to Danbury-based FuelCell Energy as part of the state-sponsored Shared Clean Energy Facility program. Each of the four FuelCell Energy power plants to be constructed will supply 2.8 megawatts of clean power to the Connecticut electric grid. The clean baseload power is enough to power about 3,000 homes, or a total of 12,000 homes taking into account all four FuelCell Energy platforms, with continuous clean energy.  The projects will be located in Danbury, Derby, New Britain, and East Hartford.  The next steps in developing these projects include working with the electric distribution utilities to finalize the power purchase agreements, obtaining siting approvals and interconnection agreements, and finalizing site engineering. These projects will provide clean baseload power, grid resiliency benefits and renewable energy credits to the Connecticut utilities under 20-year agreements.
