Net-Zero Energy Goal
CCMUA plans to produce as much energy through its operations as it consumes, resulting in zero net energy consumption by the year 2020.
Camden County, along with the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority (“CCMUA”), proposes to establish a community microgrid in Camden City. The project envisions connecting CCMUA with Covanta to allow the two facilities to exchange electrical and thermal energy during emergency and non-emergency times based on the needs of CCMUA and its connected microgrid community partners.
A 1.8 million watt solar panel array installed at the CCMUA main treatment plant was the first phase of CCMUA’s overall green energy initiative.
