CT developers pitch world's largest fuel cell park Contributed Rendering CONTRIBUTED RENDERING A rendering of the proposed 63.3-megawatt fuel cell system in Beacon Falls.

The developer of a proposed 63.3-megawatt Beacon Falls Energy Park said this week that the project is “shovel ready.”

The proposed park, which would use fuel cells from Danbury’s FuelCell Energy and be the world’s largest fuel-cell park, noted it has achieved several milestones.

The proposed park, which would use fuel cells from Danbury’s FuelCell Energy and be the world’s largest fuel-cell park, noted it has achieved several milestones.

They include approval from the Connecticut Siting Council, an engineering agreement with Eversource regarding a nearby substation, and a tax stabilization agreement with town officials.

The park still needs a stormwater construction permit from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, a gas service agreement with Yankee Gas and an interconnection agreement with ISO NEw England.

One major development the developer, O&G Industries, is hoping for is that DEEP selects the bid it placed in response to a three-state renewable energy RFP earlier this year.

Selection of winning bidders has been delayed past the original July deadline.
