Dominion begins commercial operations at Conn. renewable energy plants

Dominion (NYSE: D) has started commercial operations at two renewable energy facilities in Connecticut. The Dominion Bridgeport Fuel Cell Facility in Bridgeport and the Dominion Somers Solar Center in Somers produce a combined 20 MW of renewable energy capacity.

FuelCell Energy Inc. will operate and maintain the facility as well as supply the five Direct FuelCell stationary fuel cell power plants and an organic rankine turbine that will convert waste heat from the fuel cells into additional electricity.
