The City of Tulare has been able to reduce its electricity bills
by more than $1 million a year, after installing fuel cells, at
its wastewater treatment plant that help treat the water in a
more cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way. The city
currently has four fuel cells11 that run on biogas produced at
the wastewater treatment plant. The system generates 1.2
megawatts of electricity, or 45 percent of the plant’s needs.
