Grocery Store Installs Bloom Energy Fuel Cell
The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company plans to install a Bloom Energy fuel cell to power its Mt. Vernon, NY, store. The 250 kW system will generate more than 2 million kWh each year. The project supports the company’s carbon reduction goals and will provide resiliency even through grid outages, like those experienced in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
The on-site fuel cell is the latest addition to Stop & Shop’s clean and renewable energy portfolio that also includes solar systems on the roofs of 38 of its stores, capable of generating 9.5 million kWh each year.
Support for this project was provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
