Georgia EMCs to Add Poultry Litter to Resource Mix

March 2006 - Green Power EMC, a partnership of 28 electric membership corporations (EMCs) in Georgia, announced plans to add a poultry litter gasification facility to the resource mix of its green pricing program. The partnership has entered into a 15-year power purchase agreement with Earth Resources Inc. for the output of the 20-MW facility to be located about 70 miles northeast of Atlanta. Construction will begin in May with plant operation expected in summer 2007.

Under the Green Power EMC program, customers can make voluntary purchases of renewable energy in 150-kWh monthly blocks for $3 to $5, depending upon the participating cooperative. Currently, Green Power EMC provides power from two landfill generating plants and a low-impact hydroelectric facility, totaling 7.3 MW of generating capacity.
