Chevron Waste-to-Energy Plant to Save $27M
Chevron Energy Solutions will design and build a waste-to-energy plant at Broward County, Fla.‚Äôs wastewater treatment facility.
The project, which will generate electricity from fats, oils and grease (FOG), is expected to generate almost 2MW of power, reduce electricity usage by over 30 percent and save the county nearly $27 million in its first 17 years of operation.
The energy produced by the project will both offset utility-purchased power and help achieve county-wide carbon reduction benefits.
