Santa Clara County Installs Bloom Fuel Cells

Bloom EnergyWashington Gas Energy Systems (WGESystems) announced a 2.6 MW Bloom Energy project in Santa Clara County, Calif. WGESystems will finance, build, own and operate the project and sell all energy generated to the county under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA). The Bloom Energy fuel cells will generate power using natural gas and biogas.

The County of Santa Clara was one the primary leaders in creating the 20-year power purchase agreement with other local jurisdictions.

Alternative Energy Development Group served as the developer for the Bloom Energy project at four SCC facilities.

The County of Santa Clara recently deployed 5.8 MW of solar PV systems, raising its total solar PV generating capacity to 6.5 MW. The county currently has underway a $3 million LED lighting and lighting controls project, which is expected to reduce its electricity usage by about 2 million KWh.
