Find green business solutions
California power plants and CO2 emissions A new Whole Foods Market will be the first supermarket to generate power on-site with a fuel cell.

The Glastonbury, CT retail store will generate 50% of its electricity and heat and nearly 100% of its hot water with a fuel cell from UTC Power.

Onsite power products

The fuel cell system captures its exhaust energy for local cooling and heating and the harnessed exhaust energy will cool refrigeration cases year-round and heat the store in the winter months.

Whole foods received nearly a million dollar grant from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund to be applied to the purchase of the fuel cell, AP reports.

UTC Power provides solutions to meet a variety of on-site power needs.

Combined Cooling, Heating and Power (CCHP) Systems

Integrated high-efficiency, assured power solutions comprised of various combinations of microturbines, fuel cells, chillers and heat exchangers powered by natural gas and exhaust energy.

Heat-Based Generation

Through the use of a closed refrigerant cycle, electrical power is generated from a geothermal water source or waste heat exhausted from reciprocating engines, turbines, industrial processes or flare waste heat. RESOURCE:
