Cox Communications announced the completion of a fuel cell project in Orange County, CA, through a partnership with UTC Power. The Orange County installation joins two fuel cells that were announced in January at Cox's San Diego location. Combined, the three installations produce enough clean energy to annually power 1,200 average-sized homes by generating a total of 1.6 megawatts.

The fuel cell projects are part of the nationwide Cox Conserves program that is designed to reduce the company's carbon footprint by 20 percent by 2017 and promote eco-friendly behavior among its employees, communities and other corporations.

Located at Cox Communications' Rancho Santa Margarita facility, the 800 kW Orange County installation provides nearly 60 percent of the building's electricity requirement. This is Cox Communications' second alternative energy project in the area, which joins a 100 kW photovoltaic (PV) rooftop solar array.
