Feb. 28, 2005: LIPA To Build 10-Megawatt Fuel Cell Facility

BABYLON, N.Y. - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has announced plans for the construction of what is believed to be the world's largest fuel cell power facility at its West Babylon substation.

This month LIPA issued a request for proposals for the construction and operation of a 10-megawatt fuel cell power plant, which it intends to bring online by July 1, 2006. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the proposed facility would dwarf existing fuel cell plants, which only cracked the 1-megawatt barrier in 2000.

LIPA proposes to enter into a 20-year power purchase agreement with the winning bidder, who will own and operate the facility. Proposals are due by April 25.
