Manure Will Produce Up to 25 MW of Electricity

Environmental Power Corporation through its subsidiary Microgy Cogeneration Systems, Inc. has executed a Letter of Intent with Dairyland Power Cooperative to create a strategic alliance to deploy animal waste to energy systems on dairy and swine farms in Dairyland’s service territory in the Midwest.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire – March 10, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] These proposed systems will produce up to 25 MW of renewable distributed generation capacity and be based on Microgy’s proprietary anaerobic digestion technology that processes and controls animal waste from dairy and swine farm operations. The biogas produced from the digesters will be purchased by Dairyland for its use in generating clean, Renewable Energy. Dairyland serves a five state region through member cooperatives in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan. “Our proposed strategic alliance with Dairyland will enable numerous farms to lessen their impact on the environment, respond to new Environmental Protection Agency pollution regulations for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and profit from the production of Renewable Energy,” said Dan Eastman, vice president of Business Development for Microgy. “Dairyland will enjoy many years of reasonably priced renewable electricity to serve its expanding customer base and fulfill its commitment to preserving and protecting the quality of our environment.”
