This week, Ag-Grid Energy opened their newest biogas system at Hytone Farms in Coventry, CT. The system recycles manure and food waste into renewable electricity, heat, animal bedding, and a natural fertilizer. The project will help meet CT’s renewable electricity goals by producing 4.5 million kWh/year of renewable electricity under a 10-year agreement with the City of New Britain, and it will also help meet the state’s food waste recycling law by recycling 20,000 tons/year of organic material from restaurants, food processors, and local towns. It was supported by the US Department of Agriculture’s Renewable Energy for America Program (REAP) More >>
