May 18, 2016 |

In California, biodiesel producer Biodico Inc. announced May 18 the California Energy Commission awarded the company a $1.2 million grant for its Zero Net Energy Farms project, which would enable farms to generate all electrical and heating power needs from on-site renewable resources, while reducing greenhouse gas footprints.

The award was granted under the CEC’s Electric Program Investment Charge Challenge to develop innovative and replicable approaches for accelerating the deployment of Advanced Energy Communities located in economically disadvantaged areas.

Biodico is matching the CEC funds to develop a real-world conceptual design that combines solar cogeneration, wind turbines, anaerobic digestion and gasification at Red Rock Ranch in Five Points, Fresno County, California.
