DENVER, Colo. (December 12, 2022) — United Green Energy (“UGE”), through its parent company United Energy Trading LLC (“UET”) today announces a new investment with Green Rock Energy Partners (“Green Rock”) through Green Rock’s acquisition of PSA South Hills Landfill Gas Venture LLC (“South Hills”), a renewable natural gas (“RNG”) production facility located in South Park Township, Pennsylvania.
The South Hills landfill gas project will provide renewable natural gas and is slated to begin production mid-next year. UGE has also made an investment in another Green Rock project, Bio Town Biogas, located in Reynolds, Indiana and is providing commodity marketing and logistic services to both endeavors with Green Rock.
“Reducing carbon emissions through projects like South Hills is an important part of providing environmentally and socially responsible energy solutions to our clients. These projects give us a chance to reduce emissions at the source. United Green Energy brings our many years of experience to this partnership while United Energy Trading provides the majority of the commercial renewable natural gas offtake activities including gas injection, storage, and sales,” stated Tom Williams, Executive Chairman and EVP of Business Development.
For these projects as well as others planned in the future, United Energy Trading will conduct the majority of the commercial renewable natural gas offtake activities including gas injection, storage, and sales. This approach optimizes sustainable fuel projects’ values by leveraging and aligning UET’s longtime success in logistics and natural gas trading with deployment of additional project capital in the renewable space.
“UGE’s commercial role with our projects highlights the strategic importance of a partnership with a long-standing, successful natural gas trading company” said Andy Kelleher, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Green Rock. “UGE provides Green Rock a competitive advantage through linking sustainable fuel production to UET’s many end-use customers.”
This investment and future planned offtake activities are just one component of a comprehensive array of initiatives that UGE has planned, including advancing the supply of Responsibly Sourced Gas (RSG), low carbon intensity (CI) renewable natural gas, intermediate CI RNG, generation of carbon credits through range management improvements, and landfill gas (LFG). Aiming to neutralize and mitigate the carbon footprint of UGE’s customers, UET launched its carbon offset program in 2014, connecting individuals and businesses to Green-e® certified renewable energy credits.
