The City of Ansonia Biomass Project

Greenpoint Energy Partners is developing the largest single-source municipal scale anaerobic digestion project in the country, in the City of Ansonia, Connecticut. Up to 50,000 tons of pre-processed food waste will be delivered annually, to be decomposed in an accelerated manner in a very large, air-tight vessel. The released methane is captured, and used to create electricity (up to 2 mega watts per hour, more than enough to power the entire City of Ansonia), while the residual waste will be used as a component to produce an organic compost (about 15,000 tons per annum) to be sold to various landscaping and horticultural enterprises.

Below is a rendering of the project site. Permitting is about to commence, with the aim of construction commencing in the first half of 2013.

 

Phase 1 Update – Broadway Stages

The final roof-top for Phase 1 of the Broadway Stages Solar PV Project was completed just over 12 months ago, and the results are now in – Broadway Stages has significantly reduced their energy supply charges from the local utility (upwards of 40%… well above what was first projected). In addition to reduced energy cost, the Project has benefited the environment through decreased carbon emissions while the local Greenpoint community has benefited directly from jobs at the project site, in addition to the indirect benefit of increased iced-coffee sales at our local coffee house – Café Grumpy – as all those project workers quenched their summer thirst.

A detailed analysis of these benefits will follow in a later posting, in addition to an update on Phase 2 of the Project, that being the laying of solar panels on the rooftop of the newly constructed Kingsland Avenue Studios.
