EDF Renewable snaps up 20-MW Colorado biogas project
Sep 6, 2013 - EDF Renewable Energy, former enXco, said Thursday it had purchased a 20-MW biogas project in Colorado from Heartland Renewable Energy LLC.
The buyer is a unit of French EDF Energies Nouvelles -- the renewable energy arm of French utility EDF (EPA:EDF). It did not disclosed the value of the acquisition under the membership interest purchase agreement.
Construction of the Heartland anaerobic digester and renewable natural gas (RNG) station has already been launched. The system will be able to produce up to 4,700 million British Thermal Units (BTUs) per day by converting organic feedstock and manure into biogas. It is expected to start delivering biogas by end-March 2014.
As soon as it reaches pipeline quality, the generated renewable natural gas will be sold to Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) under a 20-year gas purchase agreement (GPA).
