Ontario farms go independent with CHP installation

An alternative energy company based in Nevada, has installed a biogas CHP system at the Gardiner Farms in Kirkton, Ontario. The farm is producing thermal energy and electricity independently.

The Farms' CHP system is provided power through two low-BTU biogas-powered engines from Caterpillar. The engines are naturally aspirated.

The system uses organic material, former waste streams, and manure for generating biogas for the Elite EnviroGen Energy Modules. An anaerobic digestion process is used for generating the biogas.

The electricity and the heat required for the residences on the property and the farm operations are generated from the former waste stream. Excess electricity that is not required by the farm will be sold back, generating additional income for the farm.
