Co-op Power's partner Northeast Biodiesel, LLC is a biofuel manufacturing plant committed to producing high quality renewable fuel in a sustainable way. Using recycled vegetable oil from food-service partners (instead of virgin oil), the plant will initially produce 1.75 million gallons, with an expansion to 3.5 million gallons within a year.
Our biodiesel can be used in diesel cars, truck and bus fleets, and tractors, as well as in place of conventional heating fuel in your home or business.
The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources partnered with Northeast Biodiesel to provide critical funding and assistance under the Massachusetts Renewable Thermal Business Investment Financing Program, which was designed to provide financial support for businesses seeking to establish or expand distribution, manufacturing or marketing of renewable thermal technologies or supply chain infrastructure. The partnership was funded through Alternative Compliance Payment (ACP) funds, which are made by electricity suppliers that do not meet their statutory Renewable Portfolio Standard obligation to purchase a sufficient percentage of renewable energy. The DOER develops and implements policies and programs aimed at ensuring the adequacy, security, diversity, and cost-effectiveness of the Commonwealth’s energy supply to create a clean, affordable, and resilient energy future. DOER is an agency of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
