Verizon installing fuel cells to California properties

Verizon agreed June 4 to install fuel cell systems at three of its California locations: two call centers in Los Angeles and San Francisco and a data center in San Jose.

Bloom Energy's solid oxide fuel cells are expected to generate more than 16 million kWh of clean electricity for Verizon in California each year.

The installation is part of Verizon's plan, announced in April, to invest $100 million in a solar and fuel-cell energy project that will help power 19 of the company's facilities in California and six other states across the country: Arizona, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and North Carolina.

When completed next year, the project will enable Verizon to generate more than 90 million kWh of its own green energy annually. The project will also eliminate more than 15,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually, which is equivalent to the carbon dioxide emissions from more than 1.6 million gallons of gasoline consumed.
