The Somerset County site is a PPA-structured project between several hosts & a local utility company as the financer. This project helps create jobs in Somerset County, which holds some of the highest unemployment rates in MD, at 14%.
Phase #2 is a 20 MW Biomass plant that will use chicken waste & wood chips to produce electricity. This project helps the state of Maryland reach their goal of 15% renewable energy by 2015 as well as reducing chicken waste pollution.
