BEACON FALLS, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut energy company wants to build the world’s largest fuel cell park in Beacon Falls.

CT Energy & Technology, a subsidiary of O&G; Industries, is seeking approval for a 66.3-megawatt fuel cell facility on the site of a 24-acre gravel pit owned by O&G.;

Developers say the fuel cell park would use about eight acres of the parcel, across the street from an electrical substation and near a gas supply line.

Beacon Falls First Selectman Christopher Bielik says he’s excited by the proposal, which supporters say would generate about $90 million in local and state taxes.

The project would require numerous state and local permits.

If built, The Beacon Falls Energy Park would displace the 59-megawatt Gyeonggi Green Energy fuel cell park in South Korea as the world’s largest.
