Turning Animal Waste to Energy
A biogas digester can also be used to turn methane from agricultural waste management systems into fuel for generators or farm equipment, or a source of renewable energy that can be piped to local utilities. Depending on the size of the farm operation, local utility rates and the methods of waste storage and treatment, farms may be able to lower their energy costs or create an additional source of revenue.
AgSTAR, a joint venture of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is an outreach program designed to help agriculture facility operators understand the technology and determine if biogas is a viable source of energy. Ameresco can help agriculture customers understand what AgSTAR offers and navigate the financial assistance options, including federal grants, local utility incentives and power purchase agreements.
