Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell is located in downtown Bridgeport, CT, along Interstate 95 and the Northeast rail corridor. The facility began commercial operations on Dec. 27, 2013, and produces 14.9 megawatts of clean energy using an electro-chemical process that efficiently converts natural gas into electricity.
FuelCell Energy Inc. operates and maintains the facility under a services contract with Dominion. FCE supplied five Direct FuelCell® stationary fuel cell power plants and an organic rankine turbine that converts waste heat from the fuel cells into additional electricity.
Dominion sells the output of the fuel cell power station to Connecticut Light & Power under fixed power purchase agreements.
Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell is part of Project 150, a program sponsored by the state and supported by the Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA) to increase renewable and clean energy projects in Connecticut by 150 megawatts. CEFIA is the nation's first full-scale clean energy finance authority that leverages public and private funds to drive investment and scale up clean energy deployment in Connecticut.
