CT reissues RFP for food waste-to-energy pilot

Connecticut’s clean-energy promoter is trying again to solicit applicants capable of building and running a pilot facility in which microbes convert food waste into usable energy.

The Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority (CEFIA) in Rocky Hill announced Wednesday a modified request for proposals for a three-year, $6 million pilot program.

Funding for the first leg of the pilot totals $2 million, CEFIA said

CEFIA initially invited RFP’s last spring for the pilot, but said it was modified to allow greater flexibility in sizing a proposed project known technically as an anaerobic digestor.

The revised RFP allows applicants to maximize a project’s economics by removing the on-site generation requirement and allowing projects to distribute energy off-site.

The application deadline is Feb. 8 at 5 p.m.
