Obtaining Utility Interconnection of On-site Generation
MetadataShow full item record
Interest in on-farm anaerobic digestion and on-site generation (OSG) has escalated in the recent past. Many diary producers made the decision to construct these systems as a means to offset the growing costs of electrical energy as well as to gain the other benefits of anaerobically digesting manure. Going from the point in time when a dairy farm owner decides to install anaerobic digester gas (ADG) fueled OSG to a fully operational system is a task that can be challenging and involves close coordination of several different activities. This fact sheet is intended to assist the dairy producer in getting the OSG successfully connected to the grid. The task of constructing the digester and getting it operational to supply the biogas that fuels the OSG is not covered in this fact sheet.
