Biodiesel Generator Powers Texas Town

A Texas Community just north of Houston has a biofuel powered generator running as a backup power source for the city offices and at least part of the urban city. The generator is powered by biodiesel created from chicken fat produced by a nearby biodiesel facility. The are actually 3 generators that are all attached to the ERCOT power grid.

The generators sell electricity back into the grid primarily during peak demand times and will provide electricity to a small area should there be a power outage in the same area. The Chicken Fat Biodiesel is produced by Safe Renewables energy – Safe Renewables Corporation (SRC) is emerging as one of the leading biodiesel producers and marketers in North America and is a major enabler of the green energy revolution
