New Britain Governor  Dannel P. Malloy announced the construction Monday of a $1 billion, fuel-cell-powered, data center that leaders predicted would dramatically expand Connecticut’s digital economy.

The complex, called the Energy & Innovation Park, is being developed on a portion of the Stanley Black & Decker site in the city’s downtown.

The project is expected to generate about 3,000 direct and indirect jobs, more than $200 million in tax revenue for the state, and another $45 million for the city over the next decade. Construction is slated to begin in early 2019.
