Fayetteville Public Works Commission (PWC) is implementing a number of renewable energy projects. These projects include digester gas cogeneration at their Cross Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, solar panels to be installed as part of an innovative, sustainable design for a new elementary school, and smart grid technology for their power distribution. These technologies will allow PWC to reduce their power demands, reduce their carbon consumption and emissions, and take advantage of renewable energy sources to meet the requirement for renewable energy portfolio standards required by North Carolina Statutes. This paper will provide a description of the smart grid and solar panel projects, and a more detailed discussion of the digester gas cogeneration project. Cogeneration technologies that were evaluated include engine generators, microturbines, and fuel cells. A comparison of technologies, capacities, implementation plans, alternatives analyses, and cost evaluations will be discussed.
