WEDNESDAY: GOV. MALLOY ATTENDS FUEL CELL DEDICATION CEREMONY AT CTTRANSIT HARTFORD FACILITY; PARTICIPATES IN VETERANS HALL OF FAME CEREMONY
(HARTFORD, CT) - On Wednesday morning, Governor Dannel P. Malloy and officials from the Connecticut Department of Transportation will participate in a ceremony dedicating the stationary fuel cell that is now providing CTTRANSIT's Hartford bus maintenance and storage facility with clean and reliable power. Annually, the fuel cell is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 827 metric tons, reduce nitrogen oxide emissions to the equivalent of removing more than 100 cars from the road, and save 3.6 million gallons of water. They will also announce the details of a multi-million dollar federal grant to build a similar stationary fuel cell at the New Haven facility.
In the afternoon, Governor Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman will participate in a ceremony inducting 12 new members into the Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished veterans who have made significant contributions to their communities after leaving military service.
