HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The power plant at Trinity College in Hartford is getting a boost from a fuel cell.

The 1.4 megawatt fuel cell plant will generate electricity and steam heat for the campus of the liberal arts school.

The college says the plant adjacent to the school's athletic center will supply the centralized steam system, minimizing the use of boilers and reducing emissions.

The plant was developed by Danbury-based FuelCell Energy and will deliver power to Trinity under a multi-year agreement with the energy company AEP OnSite Partners.

Trinity Vice President Dan Hitchell says the project will allow the school to minimize its environmental impact and save on energy costs.
