Bloom Installations

400 kW
March 2013
Oakland, California

The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) is an innovative, modern bus system, owned by the public.  In March 2013, AC Transit installed a 420 kW Bloom Energy stationary fuel cell system. The Bloom systems are fueled by biogas collected from landfills to supply clean electricity to the entire facility. Electricity from the stationary fuel cell will also power an electrolyzer to produce carbon-neutral hydrogen for the agency’s fuel cell buses.

AC Transit’s Bloom Energy Systems:

  • Will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,500 metric tons/year
  • Save over $2 million in energy costs over 10 years
