Never mind a win-win situation — this is being called a triple win.
FuelCell Energy announced Monday it will build two power plants at the submarine base in Groton. The site will include two of FuelCell Energy’s SureSource 4000 plants with a total output of 7.4 megawatts.
FuelCell Energy entered into a power purchase agreement for the long-term supply of power with the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative, which will work with Groton Utilities to implement the power supply.
The letter of intent is subject to FuelCell Energy and CMEEC reaching a definitive agreement. Contract execution is expected by summer 2017.
FuelCell Energy is a Danbury-based company specializing in the supply, recovery and storage of fuel cell energy. CMEEC is owned by six municipal utilities, including Groton Utilities, Norwalk Third Taxing District and South Norwalk Electric and Water.
