Kinsley was onsite for the delivery and installation of the TEDOM Quanto 800 Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system at Vanguard Renewable’s latest food and farm waste anaerobic digester facility at Goodrich Family Farm in Salisbury, VT.
This critical project is a unique partnership between a Vermont college, a local dairy farm, a renewable energy company, and the gas utility. The facility, owned and operated by Vanguard, produces bio-methane from the anaerobic digestion of dairy manure and food waste, which is cleaned and concentrated into pipeline-quality RNG for distribution through the utility pipeline to Middlebury College. The high-purity RNG produced from waste will ultimately provide 50% of the heating and cooling for the college in support of its plan to use 100% renewable energy by 2028. The TEDOM CHP system operates on this RNG and supplies all of the electricity needs of the facility and the majority of the hot water thermal needs.
