Green Energy Projects

Brunner Island FGD Project

In early 2007 construction began on the immense FGD project at Brunner’s Island. Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is a technology used to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) from the exhaust flue gasses of fossil fuel power plants.

Fossil fuel power plants burn coal or oil to produce steam for steam turbines, which in turn drive electricity generators.

Gettysburg EnergyWorks

The Gettysburg Energy and Nutrient Recovery Facility, which is owned by EnergyWorks BioPower (York Springs, Pennsylvania), is one such facility that has found clever ways of generating electricity. The facility collects the chicken litter from a nearby egg-processing plant and use it as a fuel to operate a Victory Boiler to produce steam to operate an Elliott steam turbine, which then provides 3.24 megawatts of renewable energy to the local grid.

Hanover Kohl's Solar Project

In 2000 IBEW Local 229 electricians working for Ace Electric completed the original electrical construction of the Kohl's store in Hanover, PA. A decade later, IBEW 229 electricians were back on site working for Parkside Site and Utility installing a roof mounted solar array. In late October 2010, Parkside Site & Utility had notified Local 229 that they had the contract to perform the Hanover Kohls solar project and that they wanted skilled IBEW electricians to perform the work.

Dallastown Highschool Solar Project

Local 229 Electricians employed by Ray Angelini, Inc. (RAI) have completed the first roof mounted solar array on a public school in York County. The project at Dallastown High School consisted of 2,067 panel's creating a 505 Kilo-Watt system.
