Northern’s system will be designed to deliver 65% of the Port Newark, New Jersey facility’s electrical needs and 12% of its thermal consumption. The NJ Clean Energy Program has deemed the fuel a renewable source that is CO2 emissions-free and has therefore committed funds to pay 30% of the project cost. [ more ]
