1 MW/DC: Megawatt of direct current energy; a unit measurement of the output of power.
2 Expected Annual Generation is projected using a combination of actual historical production and an independent engineer’s estimates based on analysis of a number of inputs, including historical production, system efficiency, and historical weather data.
3 MWh: A measurement of energy usage; the amount of energy one would use if keeping a 1,000 kilowatt machine running for an hour.
4 To determine the number of powered homes equivalency metric, Natural Resource Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator was used (https://oee.nrcan.gc.ca/corporate/statistics/neud/dpa/calculator/ghg-calculator.cfm#results).

Combined Heat & Power (CHP) systems, which are also referred to as cogeneration or cogen systems, are engines that generate both electricity and heat (as a by-product) simultaneously. Most biogas facilities use a CHP engine to convert biogas into the end product of electricity.
Not only is there a notable difference between biogas and RNG, there are many environmental advantages to upgrading biogas to this methane-rich fuel source.
