Central Connecticut State University's 1.4 megawatt fuel cell power plant uses natural gas to generate ultra-clean electricity via an electrochemical reaction producing virtually zero pollutants. The $9 million project to build, finance, and station the plant was funded through a collaboration between federal, state, and private partners, and will save CCSU more than $100,000 annually in power costs while reducing the university’s carbon footprint.
