  • The Cottontail solar project has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in Pennsylvania by 157,800 metric tons.
Leading in biogas


RNG is a type of biogas generated by decomposing organic material at landfill sites, anaerobic digesters and other waste facilities – and demand for it is quickly growing. bp is now the largest RNG producer in the US, after acquiring Houston-based Archaea Energy in late 2022.

 

Archaea’s Assai plant in Lackawanna County, PA is the largest RNG plant in the world, and exceeded its 2023 RNG production goal of 4 million MMBtus. The plant and facilities that support the plant in Pennsylvania employ 23 full-time employees.

 

We are in the planning stages to drill a carbon capture and sequestration appraisal well near Assai, to determine if carbon dioxide sequestration could be feasible at this site.

Lightsource bp is in the process of developing and constructing the Cottontail Solar project. Spanning six central Pennsylvania counties across seven different sites, Cottontail has the potential to produce 246MW.
