Biogas Energy – Bio Fuels Provide Renewable Energy
Rising energy prices, broader regulatory requirements, and increased competition in the marketplace are causing many in American agriculture’s livestock sector to consider anaerobic digestion of animal waste for power production via biogas. This bio fuel generating technology is a way to cut costs, address environmental concerns and generate renewable energy.
Having SKY Renewable Energy install an anaerobic digester at your facility is like owning an ATM. In many cases your ROI period is from 1 to 2 years. After that it is just money in the bank
With so many benefits of animal waste for bio gas, having SKY Renewable Energy install an anaerobic digester makes sense both environmentally and financially!
How Biogas Works
Anaerobic digesters are animal waste tanks or storage ponds sealed with covers that trap the biogas produced in a digester, creating a sort of “biogas plant”. The biogas is then pulled from the digester by providing a slight vacuum on a pipe with a gas pump or blower. Biogas, which contains 60% – 80% methane, is used to produce energy. Methane can power an engine generator to produce electricity for your facility or to be put back on the grid. The methane gas can also be used to operate a boiler or space heater, as well as chilling and refrigeration equipment. Gas that is not used for energy production is ignited and flared to reduce methane emissions and odor.
Making Biogas Affordable
As with all alternative power generators, anaerobic digesters may still be a costly investment, but can be significantly reduced with state, USDA and federal government renewable energy credits. which reward you for the switch to bio fuels.
With all the renewable energy incentives, you have the opportunity to get 85% of your system reimbursed. Combine these incentives with the MACRS modified accelerated depreciation and your biogas system may pay for itself in one year!
Our friendly staff at SKY Renewable Energy is there to help guide you through the financial process and answer any questions that you may have. In the long run, biogas can be more affordable than most other energy sources. It just makes sense!
