EAST TORRINGTON, Conn. — Stop & Shop, Quincy, Mass., announced today the dedication of a 400-kilowatt fuel cell at a store here.
Since the fuel cell was commissioned in June of last year, it has produced over 1.7 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, accounting for 95% of the store's total electric energy requirements. This, coupled with the use of the thermal energy produced by the fuel cell, has reduced the total electric and natural gas utility bills for the store by roughly 50%.
