Bloom Energy Saves Macy’s Energy at Cheshire Fulfillment Center

POSTED UNDER Partnerships & Awards

An innovative and clean electricity generation system is now operational at Macy’s online fulfillment center in Cheshire, CT. The system, powered by Bloom Energy Corporation, uses advanced fuel cell-based servers that produce energy with a 35 percent reduction in carbon dioxide and 99.9 percent reduction in mono-nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxide. It produces electricity more reliably and affordably, as well as more efficiently.

This project will be among the largest and most prominent Bloom Energy installations in the American retailing industry. It is capable of delivering more than 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity each year. The unique on-site power generation system uses solid oxide fuel cell technology with roots in the NASA Mars space program. The Cheshire project was made possible by a grant from The Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority of Connecticut.

Bloom Energy servers are the latest advancement in energy management at Macy’s. Through a variety of energy management techniques, Macy’s has reduced its energy consumption by 37 percent in the past 10 years.
