A 1.4 megawatt fuel cell power plant is being proposed for a portion of the United Riverhead Terminal in Northville.
The fuel cell installation would “be used to generate clean, baseload electricity which will be used by PSEG-LI to feed the local electricity grid and by United Riverhead Terminal to utilize heat produced by the fuel cell to augment URT’s tank hearing system,” the application states.
