Additional information

FuelCell Energy will provide a comprehensive turn-key project solution that includes engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance services under a 20-year power purchase agreement. The combined heat and power (CHP) fuel cell system will provide reliable and low carbon electricity and steam that will lead to a reduction in energy costs while enhancing power reliability from on-site power generation. Generating both power and thermal energy from the same unit of natural gas fuel reduces heating costs and the associated pollutants and carbon emissions from more traditional combustion-based boiler systems.
