Danbury-based FuelCell Energy says state regulators have improperly rescinded awards for three projects previously selected in the Shared Clean Energy Facility program. The company says that is putting high tech manufacturing job growth at risk.
The rescinded awards were given to solar development projects previously ordered to be disqualified by the Public Utility Regulatory Authority. FuelCell Energy CEO Jason Few says this shows that PURA's process lacks integrity and called on the agency to honor the original awards.
Danbury Representative David Arconti, chair of the legislature's Energy Committee, say FuelCell is committed to the state and it's important that agencies run fair and competitive auctions that give them the opportunity to succeed.
