system lowers phosphorous (93%) and nitrogen (7%) for river discharge per TROA and NDEP regulations. Air Quality Permit Compliance: Cogeneration system included in reply to WCAQMD and EPA Region IX. Path to Energy independence: Plant will be nearly 50% net energy and provide renewable energy to NV Energy portfolio standard. Local Jobs and Economic Support: Local equipment distributors, local subcontractors, and local labor are 75%. Leverage Capital Expenditures: Use reserves to fund additional CIP projects beyond the approved 5 year CIP to yield lower operating costs. Lower Operating Costs: Reduce annual operating costs by at least $1.12 million/year.
