Description
The University of New Hampshire is engaged in a project to use up to 7,000 scfm of LFG as the primary source of fuel for the campus cogeneration plant. They anticipate that this fuel source will meet up to 85% of the campus needs for heating and electrical energy. Their project includes a processing plant at the landfill, a 12.7-mile pipeline, modifications to the existing cogen plant, and installation of a gas-fired turbine for power generation. As part of the overall project financing, UNH will sell renewable energy credits (and the associated environmental attributes) for the electrical power sold into the grid and, for the initial five years of the project, electrical power used by the campus.
