Beacon Falls Fuel Cell Park to be World’s Largest
Energy Park Wins Siting Council Approval
Pullman & Comley’s Regulatory and Energy attorneys were instrumental in obtaining the necessary Connecticut Siting Council approval for the construction, operation and maintenance of Beacon Falls Energy Park, soon to be the largest fuel cell facility of its kind in the world, and the largest Class I renewable energy facility in Connecticut. Throughout the process, our attorneys were part of a project and development team of Connecticut-based companies and were responsible for providing legal advice on all facets of development, permitting and administrative procedures.
In addition to supplying clean and reliable energy to approximately 60,000 Connecticut residents, the project will enhance the community of Beacon Falls by generating nearly $50 million in tax revenue over the life of the project, creating additional jobs, developing a former brownfield site and enhancing utility availability for its residents. The energy park’s construction, designed to be aesthetically pleasing and landscaped for minimum visibility, is slated to begin this year and will conclude in 2019.
