Bloom Energy Corp., as agent for Frontier Communications Corp., filed a Nov. 4 application with the Connecticut Siting Council for an approval by declaratory ruling of the location and construction of a customer-side distributed resources project comprised of six new ES-5 Bloom Energy Servers solid oxide fuel cells and associated equipment.
This equipment would provide 1.4-MW (net) of power to the Frontier building located at 310 Orange Street, New Haven, Connecticut. The facility will be installed, maintained and operated by Bloom and owned by Key Equipment Finance, a third-party financing source of Bloom under an agreement with Frontier. It will be interconnected to switchgear located inside the electrical room of the Frontier Communication building
The facility will consist of six Bloom solid oxide fuel cells. The facility will interconnect to the site’s distribution system and operate in parallel with the grid to provide the site’s electrical requirements. Any electricity generated in excess of the site’s requirement will be exported to the grid under United Illuminating‘s net metering tariff. This site will not have an uninterruptible power module and thus will not have any means to output power in a grid independent capacity at any time. The facility will be fueled by natural gas supplied by Southern Connecticut Gas (SCG).
