In late 2014, a ReNew Petra affiliate teamed with CHA to assist the General Mills Yoplait Plant in Murfreesboro, Tennessee in self-developing a $14-million, 1.6MW digester gas to energy project. The team installed a state-of-the-art gas digester that processes plant waste product, blower/flare coordination, gas compression and cleanup, and a state-of-the-art Power Generation and Heat Facility. The project also included:
- A 1.6MW engine-generator
- Hot Water Heat Recovery System
- Generator housing
- Related piping and controls
- Utility interconnect
Our team negotiated the PPA / Net Metering agreement with Tennessee Valley Authority, and was responsible for FERC licensing and registration of landfill methane destruction under the TVA Renewable Initiative. The project was implemented on a fast-track, design-build basis.
