Constellation Builds Biogas Plant for LA Sanitation
Constellation signed an agreement with the City of Los Angeles to design, build and operate a 27 MW renewable energy power plant at LA Sanitation’s Hyperion Treatment Plant. The sewage treatment process at Hyperion generates a class 1 renewable fuel known as digester gas. The new power plant, which will cost about $130 million to construct, will use the digester gas produced at Hyperion as its primary fuel source.
The power plant will produce steam and electricity that will be used to operate Hyperion’s treatment operations.
Constellation and its subcontractors will develop, construct and operate the co-generation facility for 10 years, with an option to extend the agreement for five additional years.
Commercial operation of the Hyperion co-generation facility is expected by the end of 2016.
