The New York State Energy Plan is designed to secure 30% of New York State electricity sales from renewable resources by 2015. The Public Service Commission has established a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Program to achieve that goal, by installation of a variety of different renewable-power production technologies, including electricity production from anaerobic digester gas (ADG). This project applied for funds from the Customer-Sited Tier (CST) of the RPS Program.
