- Holyoke One (H1), 28 Water Street (A), Holyoke, MA – currently we have a 20 year PPA from the customer. We currently have a 20 year site lease agreement with the land owner.
- Holyoke Two (H2) 28 Water Street, Holyoke, MA – will share a common wall with (H1). This property is 2,250 feet north of the same substation that H1 is tied into. The customer has identified the circuit for which the 4.4MWs reside at. Both H1 & H2 are serviced by an existing rail bed owned and operated by Pioneer Valley Railroad. SCE currently has an additional 20 year site lease agreement with the land owner for this location as well.
- Holyoke Three (H4), – The location is 10.0 acres zoned industrial land with a railroad siding that is owned and operated by Pioneer Valley Railroad and is within 600 feet of a major substation. Currently, SCE is in negotiations with the property owner to acquire said property to construct not only a 4.4MW natural gas power plant, but Class A office space and laboratory space as well.
- Holyoke Four (H4) SCE and along with the customer are working with ISO New England to identify which circuit the additional 4.4 Mega Watts (MWs) would reside on at the substation. We currently have a 20 year site lease agreement with the land owner for this location.
- Holyoke Five (H5) The customer would like to see a minimum of 4.4MWs at this location along with a 20 year site lease agreement with the property owner. This location is also serviced by rail which is owned and operated by Pan Am. This rail spur will tie into Pioneer Valley Railroad by the first quarter in 2019.
SCE’s goal is to build a dynamic micro-grid to help balance out and stabilize the future electricity needs of a municipal customer. With the addition of a minimum of 22MWs distributed across the municipality, behind the meter, SCE will save the customer a minimum of $6.25MM ($1.25MM per location) per year in capacity charges. By stabilizing the electricity rates to the customer, the customer is better able to forecast residential and commercial rates. The customer expects to maintain and grow economic investment in the municipality with a more balanced municipal electric grid. With this distributed dynamic power grid, the customer is able maintain and secure their municipal power grid against natural disasters and man-made attacks and provide a much needed demand response.
The customer has assured us that with increasing demands on their municipally owned and operated grid, that to maintain long-term viability and rate stabilization the SCE patented solution remains at the top of their agenda moving forward.
These are the current opportunities in that SCE is pursuing with municipal electric operating utilities, electrical co-operatives and utilities.
- Municipal Project 6 20 year PPA from the municipality with a 20 year site lease agreement from the Municipal Department of Public Works (DPW) for 4.4MWs using natural gas RECIPs that will make use of both natural gas and landfill gas. This project is designed to stabilize and balance the cost of electricity behind the meter and to enhance revenue to offset the cost of maintaining a capped landfill under a 30 year mandate. The municipality does not produce its own electricity but invests in or purchases it from Independent Power Producers (IPPs) over long-term PPAs
- Municipal Project 7 A 20 year PPA from the municipality with a 20 year site lease agreement to replace existing 3MWs of aging diesel generators with a minimum of 4.4MWs using natural gas RECIPs to help balance and stabilize residential and commercial load requirements in the municipality. Generator set(s) would be located adjacent to, or within close proximity to a major substation.
- Municipal Project 8 A 20 year PPA from the municipality. Currently negotiating a purchase and sale agreement to acquire a 3 acre rectangular parcel adjacent to an active rail bed that would service the facility. We are also located next to an electrical distribution line termination that has excess capacity. This location is within 1 mile to a major municipal substation that is located near a large industrial park.
- Market Resource 1 A minimum of 4.4MWs serving as a base load peaker plant with a current 20 year site lease agreement with the landowner. The interconnect agreement is currently being applied for.
- Market Resource 2 Currently under a 20 year site lease agreement with the landowner who has current 4MW PPA for a solar farm, however the interconnect application will be expedited if we can build an additional 4.4MW Peaker Plant on same parcel of land.
- Market Resource 3 Current agreement with the landowner to construct a 4.4MW natural gas power plant as a market resources, contingent upon an interconnect agreement with the utility. It is a 600 acre farm that produces wood shavings and would utilize a significant amount of waste heat.
- Central and Eastern Massachusetts Municipalities, – Currently there are forty one (41) municipalities that participate in the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company (MMWEC) grid. In some instances these municipal operating companies produce a percentage of their own power (hydro, solar, wind & diesel) or buy off the grid from other sources. Our solution will save them money and strengthen their own municipal grids.
- Rail Terminal, Long Island, NY – Under contract to build a 19.2MW power plant using 2 – 9.6MW natural gas RECIPs to sell electricity to the wholesale market, manufacture & ship Urea, distilled water and bottled CO2 utilizing existing rail infrastructure.
- Farm, Upstate NY – Current agreement with landowner to build a 4.4MW peaker plant as a market resource and produce both distilled water and Urea.
- Dairy Farm, CT – Waste To Energy/Natural Gas 4.4MW facility selling to the grid utilizing waste heat to dry waste creating bio-char and the production of distilled water along with capturing, compressing and bottling CO2.
- Mid-West 1 – Opportunities for the replacement of aging power plants up 50MWs utilizing 6 natural gas 9.6MW Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RECIPs) in a distributed power grid format and producing Urea, Ethanol, Distilled Water, Methanol and recycling of plastic for wholesale markets.
- Mid-West 2 – Opportunities for the replacement of municipally owned aging coal fired plants replaced by power plants up 50MWs utilizing 6 natural gas 9.6MW Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RECIPs) in a distributed power grid format and producing Urea, Ethanol, Distilled Water, Methanol and recycling of plastic for wholesale markets.
- South East – Major natural gas supplier that has identified a need for up to 7 locations for SCE to build a dynamic distributed power grid to strengthen the grid against natural disasters and to peak shave Currently in negotiations for both 20 year site lease agreements and PPAs. This project, as proposed will be to build a minimum of a 35MW distributed power grid to sell electricity into the wholesale market and use waste heat for plastic recycling.
All of the above geographic locations have been vetted for the necessary requirements for the construction of power plants, sales and distribution of electricity and the production, sales and distribution of the commodity(s) produced.
