U.S. Gain reaches dairy RNG off-take agreement with Brightmark Energy
In the United States (US), U.S. Gain, a leader in the development, procurement, and distribution of renewable natural gas (RNG) has reached an agreement to purchase dairy-based renewable RNG from Brightmark Energy LLC.
Earlier this year, Brightmark Energy announced its investment in Madison, Wisconsin (WI), Yakima County, Washington (WA) and Byron, New York (NY) dairy farms. According to U.S Gain, Brightmark Energy selected U.S. Gain as a partner thanks to its gas marketing capabilities, namely, its immediate link to the California transportation market and tenured in-house compliance team.
U.S. Gain has extensive experience with the regulatory programs allowing for the generation of environmental credits when the dispensing the RNG as a transportation fuel, specifically the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and Oregon Clean Fuels Program (CFP). This experience coupled with our connections to obligated parties, enables U.S. Gain to monetize credits at peak values, producing favorable returns for all project partners, said Bryan Nudelbacher, Director of Business Development for U.S. Gain.
RNG is the fastest pathway to achieve transportation emission reductions in regions that need it most. U.S. Gain is rapidly expanding its portfolio of RNG supply through a diversified approach including offtake agreements, financing support, and capital investment – and says that it is “continually seeking” new opportunities for project collaboration.
