Bloom Energy the BLOOMDOGGLER has a new strategy to install their expensive, dirty, and unreliable boxes. Just invite state siting council officials to the proposed site , get them to nod their heads and then install the polluting boxes without planning meetings or permits.
I have come across Petition No. 1090 Bloom Energy/Danbury Fair Mall Danbury, Connecticut Staff Report January 23, 2014. In the petition from Bloom Energy Corporation (Bloom) for a declaratory ruling that no Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need is required for the installation of a 750 kW fuel cell facility at the Danbury Fair Mall at 7 Backus Avenue in Danbury, Connecticut. Council member Dr. Barbara Bell and Siting Analyst Robert Mercier visited the site on January 15, 2014 to review the proposal. Jay Stevenson, an engineer with Core States Group, represented Bloom at the field review.
Of course the site visit went well and no Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need was required.
This is the new Bloom Energy approach as they do not want public records like there are in New Jersey and Delaware of how dirty their Boxes are. No need to tell the folks in Hartford of the solid waste with sulfur that is hauled out of state for processing. I have rung Dr. Bell’s bell and asked for a full accounting of the solid waste with sulfur that will be shipped from Danbury to the out of state processing facility. Let’s see if the CT Siting Council responds.
