City opens new bioenergy facility

The Escondido Utilities Department and Anaergia have unveiled the new Escondido Bioenergy Facility at the HARRF (Hale Avenue Resource Recovery Facility.) Biogas is produced in the sludge digesters and is composed of mostly methane and carbon dioxide. The Escondido Bioenergy Facility uses biogas as fuel for two natural gas engines. These engines drive electrical generators which produce 1.2 megawatts of renewable energy.
