Community Assistance Initiative
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to the Rockingham County Business and Technology Center for the installation of a renewable energy system that utilizes landfill methane to produce electricity while capturing the generator’s waste heat for use in greenhouses which will be used for training and demonstration regarding growing alternative crops. Golden LEAF funds will be used for the landfill gas-powered electric generator that will be connected to the grid. The project leverages funding from other sources, and once the project is operational, revenue streams will sustain the project and provide positive cash flow that will be reinvested into job-creating economic development projects.
