What is the source of the electricity for the renewable energy program?

The power comes from a renewable source. In this case, the “renewable sources” are: “ … energy derived from sunlight, wind, falling water, biomass, sustainable or otherwise … energy from waste, municipal solid waste, wave motion, tides, and geothermal power …Renewable energy shall also include the proportion of the thermal or electric energy from a facility that results from the co-firing of biomass.”

  • Criterion Power Partners, LLC – 70 MW
