El-Vi Farms to host Cayuga RNG's third dairy project in upstate New York
In the United States (US), Cayuga RNG Holdings, LLC (Cayuga RNG) – a joint venture owned by a subsidiary of UGI Energy Services (UGIES), a subsidiary of UGI Corporation (UGI), and energy project developer Global Common Energy, LLC (GCE) – has announced that it has entered into an agreement with El-Vi Farms LLC to develop its third project to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) in upstate New York (NY).
Cayuga RNG’s third dairy RNG project will be constructed at El-Vi Farms LLC, which is located on the border of Wayne and Ontario counties in upstate New York (NY). is in addition to the previously announced Spruce Haven Farm and Allen Farm projects.
The project will include the construction of a manure digester and gas upgrading equipment. Once completed in the first half of the calendar year 2023, the project is expected to produce 55 million cubic feet of RNG annually that will be delivered to a local natural gas pipeline serving the regional distribution system. UGIES’ subsidiary, GHI Energy, will be the exclusive marketer for Cayuga RNG.
In total, the Spruce Haven, Allen Farms, and El-Vi Farms projects represent nearly US$50 million of investment in renewable energy projects for Cayuga RNG. Cayuga RNG is actively pursuing several other projects in the region.
This is another great collaborative opportunity to expand our RNG business in the Finger Lakes region of New York. We are pleased with our progress in positioning UGI as a leader in meeting the environmental and social needs of our customers and our communities, and look forward to further expanding our portfolio of renewable offerings, Robert F. Beard, EVP, Natural Gas, UGI said.
