At Alliance Energy, we believe treating earth's resources with respect is critical. We continuously work to minimize our impact on air and water quality, sensitive habitats, and natural resources.
We are actively working on the development of commercial scale solar installations at strategic locations throughout the United States. Currently we are working on sites in California and Colorado.
Alliance has a proven track record of developing renewable technologies. In 2007 Alliance acquired a group of three different hydro-electric facilities located along the Mongaup River with a combined capacity of more than 20 MWs. These facilities required significant rehabilitation, Alliance successfully restored the safety compliance of the dams and the electric production at all of the facilities before divesting the assets.
Alliance has successfully tested biofuels at multiple sites. In 2006, the Ogdensburg Power Plant was selected to participate in a trial program to study the viability of using biodiesel, a 100% renewable energy biofuel, to produce electricity and steam. During the test, Alliance utilized 250,000 gallons of biodiesel in one of its operating units - at the time it was the largest amount of biofuel consumed in a fossil fuel generating plant in the United States.
Alliance Energy continues to plan for expansion in renewable and sustainable energy opportunities throughout the northeastern United States.
