Together with Joseph Gallo Farms the renewables firm is to install a 60 kW generator running on cow manure-derived biogas from farms in Atwater, California to power the event, which will be carbon neutral.

Microgy previously announced an 18-month purchase agreement for all biogas generated from its eight-digester Huckabay Ridge facility in Stephenville, Texas by the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). The agreement also opens the door on the potential sale of carbon offset credits by the plant.

The facility, about 100 km southwest of Fort Worth, that will extract millions of cubic feet of pipeline-ready natural gas from cow manure every day.

will generate up to 2 mcf of gas per day along with around 200,000 tonnes of carbon offset credits per year from 10,000 cows.

The plant, currently under construction at an estimated cost of $10 million, is expected to be at full capacity by the end of spring.
