Fuel Cell, Offshore Wind Projects Under Consideration By State
18 Jun 2018
A Massachusetts-based energy company hopes to build the first offshore wind farm for Connecticut, promising the development would bring up to $1 billion in economic benefits to the state.
Meanwhile, an investment firm proposes building a $1 billion energy and innovation park in vacant portions of the Stanley Black & Decker campus in New Britain. The first phase is a $100 million fuel cell project.
Those are two of the 27 energy proposals before the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, which is seeking new projects to help meet Connecticut’s clean energy goals. The state plans to select projects that would generate up to 899,250 megawatt hours of energy, with no more than 825,000 megawatt hours being allocated to offshore wind.
