Dominion to develop 14.9MW fuel cell power generating facility in Connecticut, US
US-based energy company Dominion plans to develop 14.9MW a fuel cell power generating facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut as part of its renewable portfolio expansion strategy.
The company earlier acquired FuelCell Energy that owns the said development facility that converts natural gas into electricity by employing a reactive process.
Electricity produced at the facility will be purchased by the Connecticut Light & Power under a 15-year fixed power purchase agreement.
Dominion chairman, president and chief executive officer Thomas F. Farrell II said that the company is now working on the fuel cell technology to support the region's clean energy goals and also to develop the economic benefits for the State of Connecticut and the City of Bridgeport.
"The Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell is another important step in our efforts to identify and develop opportunities to produce clean energy that is reliable and cost effective.
"We are now adding fuel cell technology to our energy portfolio that already includes wind, hydro, biomass and, soon, solar," said Farrell.
The project is scheduled to be completed and operational in 2013.
