VTA to install Bloom Fuel Cells
The Santa Clara County Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) will receive $750,000 in funding for the agency’s first Bloom Energy fuel cell facility.
The grant, awarded through the U.S. Department of Transportation, will go towards a 400kW fuel cell facility for VTA’s Guadalupe Division maintenance yard in San Jose, California.
The approximately $4 million fuel cell energy facility will consist of independent power modules, offering VTA the ability to power the maintenance yard and deliver both AC and DC power to charge electric vehicles and buses more quickly. The new system will also offer VTA the ability to expand the power system by adding additional fuel cell modules to meet its future power needs.
