Dominion will turn cow waste into renewable energy

Good News Notes:

“Dominion Energy has formed a $200 million partnership with Vanguard Renewables to turn methane from livestock waste at dairy farms into renewable natural gas.”

“The partnership will work initially with dairy farms in Georgia, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, with multiple projects under development. Dominion says the RNG conversions at initial projects will reduce annual CO2-equivalent emissions by more than 450,000 metric tons — the same as taking nearly 100,000 cars off the road or planting 7.5 million new trees each year.”

“Dominion and Massachusetts-based Vanguard are working with the Dairy Farmers of America on the projects. The two companies said the methane conversion projects will also create a new source of revenue for dairy farmers, though no financial terms of the partnerships were disclosed.”
