Second FuelCell Energy product using on-site biogas achieves California Air Resources Board Distributed Generation (DG) Certification


FuelCell Energy, Inc. has announced that the SureSource3000™ fuel cell power plant operating on Anaerobic Digester Gas (ADG) has received the California Air Resources Board’s Distributed Generation Certification to the 2013 Waste Gas Standard.

This certification is necessary for any distributed generation equipment to be exempt from air permit requirements in the State of California.

President and CEO of FuelCell Energy, Chip Bottone, said, “The 2.8MW SureSource 3000 and the earlier certificated 1.4MW SureSource 1500 solutions are the only power plants to achieve this CARB 2013 certification operating on renewable biogas, which illustrates our leadership position in providing affordable ultra-clean on-site renewable power.”
