(Fuel Cell Works, 8/3/17)
A new law opens the door for more fuel cell projects in Connecticut, with the state placing value on their ability to enhance electric reliability and resiliency.
A hub of U.S. fuel cell manufacturing, the state already has several fuel cell microgrids, including projects for the town of Woodbridge, University of Bridgeport, and Hartford’s Parkville neighborhood. The state also is home to utility-scale fuel cell projects.
More fuel cells are likely to be installed now with the enactment of Public Act 17-144 – An Act Promoting the use of Fuel Cells for Electric Distribution System Benefits and Reliability,approved last month by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Dannel Malloy.
