In mid-December, dairy-derived RNG from Maas Energy’s facilities in Merced began flowing into Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) gas transmission system. The project was primarily funded through the California Public Utilities Commission’s Dairy Biomethane Pilot Program, established as part of the state’s strategy to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants.  The project produces RNG (biomethane) by capturing methane at the source from 15 dairy farm partners in Merced County. From there, pipeline-ready RNG is transported to PG&E’s gas system via the California Energy Exchange’s (CEE) pipeline, where it is introduced at a receiver station near Panoche. More >>
