As the deadline to submit offers to SDG and E closed on May 30, Envirepel Energy announced it had submitted for consideration, an additional 240 Mega Watts of renewable ultra low emissions biomass energy projects to the electric company.

The request for offers to companies like Envirepel Energy answers California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's Renewable Energy mandate that utilities purchase up to 20 percent of their total energy supplies from renewable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, ocean, hydro, and biomass.

"We submitted 240 MW of renewable Biomass projects to SDG and E this morning under the 2007 RFO," said company founder Anthony J. Arand. "I think this qualifies as a major watershed event for our company and I believe this to be the largest single submission of biomass energy projects ever submitted by one company to a utility in the history of the State of California."

Envirepel Energy's process called "gasification combustion" cleanly burns green waste and wood. It produces electricity without degrading the environment or creating adverse effects on human beings.

Envirepel's first project, Kittyhawk, is a 2 MW biomass facility in Vista, California, which is in the final stages of construction and expected to be on line for SDG and E in September.

Envirepel Energy's San Diego County-based projects submitted also include the 90 MW Fallbrook Renewable Energy Facility (FREF). "The Fallbrook Facility would be the largest, and cleanest, biomass energy facility ever constructed in California, Arand said.

The company's second, third and fourth proposed sites, are all 7.5 MW installed capacity facilities destined for delivering energy to SDG and E, one in Vista near the Kittyhawk project, one on the Los Coyotes Indian reservation, and the third on the Ramona Landfill.

With the Vista Power Purchase Agreement signed and ready to submit to the PUC for approval; the "twins" (Ramona and Los Coyotes @ 7.5 MW each) in final negotiations to be completed inside of 30 days and also submitted to the PUC for approval, that would give Envirepel Energy a total installed capacity of 264.5 MW in San Diego County under contract with SDG and E if SDG and E accepts the 240 MW bid under the 2007 RFO offering. "For the record, that would be equivalent to about 50 percent of the state's total existing biomass and 'Waste to Energy' generation in California," Arand said.
