Biopower Solicitation 2015
Sustainable Biopower Solicitation Results
Trenton Biogas LLC submitted the only application in this Solicitation, proposing a 1,137 kW CHP project at the Mercer County Regional Sludge Management facility in Trenton. The Solicitation Evaluation Committee (Committee) denied the application for failing to satisfy the Solicitation’s eligibility requirements on net metering and interconnection and for failing to submit a signed contract for the system’s installation.
FY2015 - Round One
Applications were submitted by the Gloucester County Utilities Authority (GCUA) for a 1,266 kW CHP project at its Water Pollution Control Facility in West Deptford, and by the Village of Ridgewood for the construction of a micro-grid from its existing CHP system to an adjacent public water well. In an Order dated March 18, 2015, the Board accepted Staff’s and the Solicitation Evaluation Committee’s recommendation to deny GCUA’s application for failing to meet the Solicitation’s eligibility requirement of having 100% of the feedstock derived from a Class 1 biomass resource, and to deny Ridgewood’s application due to missing or incomplete documents and inconsistent technical information.
FY2015 - Round Two
GCUA resubmitted its application with modifications to address the 100% Class 1 feedstock issue cited in the denial of its Round One application. In an Order dated June 17, 2015, the Board accepted Staff’s and the Solicitation Evaluation Committee’s recommendation to deny GCUA’s application because it failed to achieve a minimum threshold score on the Solicitation’s evaluation criteria.
