July 21st, 2015 - Clean Tennessee Energy Grant Check Presentation

July 21st, 2015 • 11:00AM

2015 07 21 3
On Tuesday, July 21st, 2015, there will be a Clean Tennessee Energy Grant Check Presentation to the City of Lebanon for $250,000 at 11:00AM.

TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau, Kathy Glapa, Office of Sustainable Practices (she helped with the grant), Lori Munkeboe also from the Office of Sustainable Practices, Assistant to the Commissioner David Owenby, Reggie Mudd, Nashville Regional Rep for Economic and Community Development, and PHG representatives will be in attendance.

Governor Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Bob Martineau awarded more than $3.1 million to fund energy efficiency projects for local governments and municipalities, utilities and state entities across Tennessee. The City of Lebanon was awarded $250,000 for a biomass gasification project. The City of Lebanon is planning to implement a waste-to-energy biomass gasification project at their Wastewater Treatment Plant. The project will utilize existing wood waste, wastewater treatment plant sludge, and the discarded tires as fuel, to produce renewable energy. The entity is expecting to save $341,180 annually, or $8.5 million during its 25-year operating life. Additionally, these cost savings will be noticed through avoided transportation costs for disposal. Overall emissions reductions include: 2,717 tons of carbon dioxide, 9,809 pounds of sulfur dioxide, and 3,719 pounds of nitrous oxide. In addition to the reductions in emissions, the gasification system will generate 748,880 kWh.

Project supporters include: LoJac, Nutro, Wilson County, and Bane and Associates.
