A new 1.4 MW FuelCell Energy utility-owned fuel cell is now in full operation at California State University San Bernardino (CSUSB) following a ribbon-cutting ceremony on 8th November. Installed in a joint project with utility Southern California Edison, the fuel cell generates electricity for the utility grid and university receives the by-product heat free of charge.

“Electricity generated by the fuel cell is going straight into the Edison grid, and the university will be able to utilize the waste heat it produces to preheat the campus heating system, resulting in an estimated annual savings of $120,000 from avoided natural gas costs,” said Tony Simpson, senior director of facilities services at CSUSB.
