BAC members receive more than $25 million in grants from the California Energy Commission!

Over the past few weeks, BAC members received more than $25 million in grants awarded from the California Energy Commission’s Electricity Program Investment Charge (EPIC).  The grants will help to fund bioenergy projects that convert dairy, forestry and urban organic waste to clean, renewable electricity.  BAC members that received grant funding include California Bioenergy, the City of San Jose, Clean World, Phoenix Energy, Recology, The Watershed Center, and West Biofuels.  Together, these grants will help to demonstrate a variety of bioenergy technologies and to commercialize  community scale- bioenergy projects.  These projects will also help California to meet its goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase recycling, protect air and water quality, and reduce wildfire hazards.
