UGI to Develop New Renewable Natural Gas Project in Upstate New York

UGI Corp. has entered into an agreement with Cayuga RNG to develop its fourth project to produce renewable natural gas (RNG) in upstate New York, the company said on Tuesday.

Cayuga RNG is a joint venture of UGI Energy Services LLC (UGIES), a subsidiary of UGI, and Global Common Ventures LLC (GCV).

Cayuga RNG’s fourth project will be constructed at Bergen Farms and Glenview Dairy, both located in Schuyler County in upstate New York. The project will include the construction of a manure digester and gas upgrading equipment at each location. Once completed in the second half of calendar year 2024, the project is expected to produce approximately 150 million cubic feet of RNG annually that will be delivered to a local natural gas pipeline serving the regional distribution system. UGIES’ subsidiary, GHI Energy, will be the exclusive marketer for Cayuga RNG.

“We are excited to increase our portfolio of sustainable energy solutions that will deliver environmental benefits to farmers, communities and customers,” Robert F. Beard, executive vice president of natural gas at UGI, said. “Renewables is a platform for growth at UGI and, with this investment, we have committed nearly $250 million to RNG projects across multiple states that will further expand our geographic footprint and earnings capability.”
