The Fremont Community Digester
FREMONT, Mich. (WZZM) - Novi Energy says construction at its digester is in the home stretch and the company is looking for ten employees to work at the facility when it opens later this summer.
The $22 million Fremont Community Digester project will use waste from food processors like Gerber to create bio-gas. That gas will power two large generators and produce electricity. The electricity from the digester will be sold to Consumers Energy.
Novi Energy and Consumers Energy have entered into a purchase contract covering the next 20 years. In November, the three-megawatt facility should be on-line.
Novi Energy President Anand Gangadharan says job postings are listed on the company's website. Besides the Fremont digester, the company is also building a plant in Virginia that will use wood chips to produce electricity.
