Resiliency and Energy Efficiency

The Water Pollution Control Plant is undergoing a project to improve it's energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and increase it's resiliency. The project has these components:

  • Microgrid battery backup peak energy balancing, charged by the solar array
  • High strength waste receiving facility
  • Biogas purification facility to produce Renewal Natural Gas for use in vehicles
  • Compression system for filling trucks with compressed gas
  • More energy efficient mixing in the digester and energy efficient aeration
