Bio Energy registers 4.8-MW landfill gas project in Ohio

Bio Energy (Ohio III) LLC applied June 1 at the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for a renewable energy designation for a 4.8-MW landfill gas-fired plant to be on-service as of March 1, 2017.

This is the EDI Brown County LFGTE Power Station, to be located in Georgetown in Brown County, Ohio. It will be located at the Rumpke Waste and Recycling landfill at 9427 Beyers Road.

The plant will be made up of three CAT 3520 reciprocating engines with a capacity of 1.6 MW apiece. The project has been approved for interconnection into the PJM Interconnection grid through “Duke Energy,” said the filing, which is an apparent reference to Duke Energy Ohio. Power from the facility will be sold to American Municipal Power through a long-term power purchase agreement.
