- Power Generation Station Renewable Energy Expansion Project
- The PGS Renewable Energy Expansion Project will increase power and heat generation capabilities of existing cogeneration facilities at the EBUD Main Wastewater Treatment Plant (MWWTP). This project will utilize excess biogas from the MWWTP that is currently flared and wasted due to capacity limitations. The proposed project will have the capacity to produce an additional nine megawatts of "green" energy for use on-site or sale to PG&E or a third party. Power production from this renewable resource would help reduce California's dependency on fossil fuels for energy production. As part of this project, EBMUD will modify its interconnection agreement with PG&E and may negotiate a sales agreement with a third party for revenue generation. The project will not require construction of new off-site infrastructure, such as new power lines, to facilitate this transfer of additional power. Construction of facilities necessary for the expanded power generation will be confined to within the boundaries of the existing MWWTP. Completion of construction is expected by early 2010.
