OPAL Fuels Ohio RNG Plant Production Underway (Ind. Report)
OPAL Fuels,Aspire Energy
Date: 2022-03-07
White Plains, New York-based OPAL Fuels LLC reports it has begun commercial operations at its new landfill gas-to-RNG facility in Shiloh, Ohio. An affiliate of NextEra Energy Resources is a joint owner of the project.

The plant uses patented technology to treat landfill gas by removing CO2 and other components to purify the biogas and produce pipeline-quality RNG.

The facility is expected to produce around 6.9 million gasoline gallon equivalents per year of RNG and to cut the landfill's methane emissions by approximately 20,000 tpy -- down from more than 54 million gallons of petrol, approximately 1.1 million barrels of oil consumed, or the carbon sequestered by more than 570,000 acres of US forests in one year.

  • SRP Contracts for New Solar Plants Totaling 500MW (Ind. Report)
    Salt River Project,EDP Renewables North America
    Date: 2021-08-13
    Following its recent announcement to expand utility-scale solar resources to 2,025 MW by 2025, the Arizona-based not-for-profit public power utility Salt River Project (SRP) has announced three new solar energy plants that will deliver a total of 500MW of renewable energy. Facebook announced it will off-take 450MW of the combined solar capacity to support its newly announced data center in Mesa, Arizona, and help meet the company's 100 pct renewable energy commitments.

    The three projects include two 200-MW solar plants and one 100-MW solar plant. SRP is contracting with subsidiaries of solar developers AES, EDP and NextEra Energy Resources to construct and operate the three new plants. The first project is expected to come online in fall 2022 and start of construction for all the new solar plants, which will all be located in Pinal County, will begin at different points in time throughout 2022.

    The first project, the 100-MW West Line Solar project located in the city of Eloy, Pinal County, Arizona developed by AES Corp. is expected to come online in October, 2022. SRP and AES have worked together to bring online a 100MW solar system, East Line Solar, as well as a 10MW, 40 megawatt-hours (MWh) standalone battery-based energy storage system.

    The 200-MW Randolph Solar Park, developed by EDP Renewables North America is slated to come online in 2023. SRP is partnering with EDP Renewables, a global leader in renewable energy production, to develop and operate this 200MW solar park located in the city of Coolidge, Pinal County, Arizon adjacent to SRP's Randolph 230kV substation. Randolph Solar will span across 1,346 acres, and construction is anticipated to begin in fall of 2022.

    The third project, the 200-MW Valley Farms Solar project is expected to become fully operational by December 2023. SRP has contracted with a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources to develop the solar plant in Coolidge, Ariz. The two companies have previously worked together to develop and contract a 20MW solar generation facility and battery storage system, Pinal Central Solar Energy Center, and a 100MW solar plant, Saint Solar, which began operations in 2018 and 2020 respectively. Additionally, SRP and NextEra have plans to develop two solar-charged battery projects totaling nearly 350MW, Sonoran Energy Center and Storey Energy Center. Valley Farms Solar will be 1,900 acres in size and construction will begin in winter of 2022.

    Redwood City, California-based Peninsula Clean Energy, a Community Choice Aggregation agency and the official electricity provider for San Mateo County, reports it will procure 245MW of power from three California wind projects as part of its goal of providing 100 pct renewable, emission-free power by 2025.

    The three wind deals include a seven-year extension of an existing 150 MW wind project in Solano County with Avangrid Renewables. A second deal calls for additional eight years with Shell Energy North America (US) for half of the capacity and renewable energy generated by the existing 130MW wind project near Mojave. The final source will be half of the expected 60MW generated for 20 years from this project being repowered by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources near Bakersfield in Kern County.

    The repowering includes replacing 157 existing turbines with 11 new turbines for Peninsula Clean Energy's portion and expected to be operational by September 2021. The additional wind generation will supplement solar generation -- including supply from the newly commissioned 200MW Wright Solar and 100MW Mustang Two Whirlaway projects.

    The Wisconsin Public Service Commission (WPSC) reports it is considering the fate of the proposed 150-MW Two Creeks and 300-MW Badger Hollow solar farms that, if built, would more than quadruple the state's solar capacity.

    The proposed $390 million projects, which are being reviewed by grid operator MISO, would be developed by energy companies Invenergy and NextEra Energy Resources. Two utilities -- MGE Energy in the Madison area and Wisconsin Public Service Corp. in the Green Bay area -- are seeking to purchase all of the proposed solar project's total power production.

    The proposed Badger Hollow solar farm developed by Chicago-based Invenergy would incorprorate 1.2 million solar panels covering about 2,500 acres of farmland in Iowa County in central Wisconsin. The 150-MW Two Creeks solar farm would run by NextEra. (Source: WPSC, Energy News Network, SDD, 30 Nov., 2019) Contact: Wisconsin Public Service Commission, (608) 266-5481, www.psc.wi.gov

    NextEra Wind, Solar Developments Stymied in Kansas (Ind. Report)
    Renewable Energy,NextEra
    Date: 2019-10-18
    In Kansas, Reno and Sedgwick Counties have nixed Florida-based NextEra's planned 80-turbine industrial wind farm within their borders.

    Sedgwick County Commissioners have banned commercial wind facilities from the county and also enacted permitting legislation requiring new commercial-scale solar facilities to receive FAA approval if they are to be sited within a mile of airport facilities.

    The legislation is in response to public concerns about the supposed health effects and noise from wind turbines, bird and bat deaths caused by commercial wind and solar facilities, and interference with area airports and air traffic. NextEra has developed wind and solar facilities in 35 states, including six in western Kansas. The August decision was the first time a major wind farm had been rejected in Kansas in a decade.
