The Plainfield Renewable Energy project, a 37.5 MW biomass plant located in Plainfield, Conn., is substantially complete and commercially operational.

Leidos, an engineering, national security and health solutions company that will operate the plant, says the facility has met all conditions to qualify as an ISO New England market asset and achieved commercial operation under the terms of its interconnect agreement with the grid operator. Leidos notes that the biomass plant has also met the eligibility requirements under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for a 1603 cash grant.

Utility Connecticut Light & Power will purchase 80% of the power from the plant based on a 15-year off-take agreement.

Leidos adds that it will commence marketing efforts to sell the facility to renewable power plant investors in an effort to maximize the value of the investment for shareholders.
