"Dominion is pleased to be adding 20 megawatts of renewable energy in Connecticut to our existing 2,100 megawatts of carbon-free power from our Millstone Power Station," said David Christian, Dominion Generation CEO, in a press release. "These stations are generating clean, reliable electricity for Connecticut."
Around 15 MW comes from Dominion Resources' Bridgeport Fuel Cell plant, which converts natural gas to electricity while additionally harnessing energy from "waste heat" generated by the conversion process.
Dominion Resources also fired up a 5 MW solar farm, bringing the utility's solar facility count to three. Electricity generated from this latest solar farm and fuel cell facility will be sold to Northeast Utilities' Connecticut Power & Light. Two weeks ago, Dominion brought online a 28.6 MW Indianapolis solar project. The other solar project is near Augusta, Ga.
