The MWRA's Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant treats an average of 360 million gallons of wastewater each day from forty-three communities in greater Boston and is one of the largest electricity users in the Northeast.  MWRA has a number of on-going programs to ensure that the facility reaches the goal of 30% renewable energy by 2020 established by Governor Patrick's Executive Order 484.  Currently, the Plant uses renewable energy to self-generate approximately 26% of its power needs on-site through a combination of a steam turbine generator fueled by digester gas, hydroelectric power generated as the treated water falls into the outfall tunnel, solar energy and wind turbines.  In addition, the MWRA is receiving stimulus funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for a second, 180 kW solar installation on Deer Island.  This $1.2 million design/build project is part of the $25 million in Clean Water SRF stimulus funding currently allocated to MWRA by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. An outline of the renewable energy initiatives at the Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant will be presented.
