P&G, Constellation to Build 50 MW Biomass Plant in Georgia

February 2015 - The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) and Constellation Energy announced the development of a 50 megawatts (MW) biomass plant in Albany, Georgia. Under a 20-year steam supply agreement with Constellation, P&G will purchase the steam to meet all of its steam needs for the company's paper manufacturing facility also in Albany. Constellation will own, construct, and operate the $200 million cogeneration plant, which will provide P&G with up to 425,000 pounds per hour of steam and generate 385,000 megawatts-hour (MWh) of electricity per year. The generated electricity will be sold to Georgia Power under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA). The combined-heat-and-power (CHP) biomass plant will have the capacity of 1,037 MMBtu per hour of fuel input, which will provide 100 percent of the steam and up to 60 to 70 percent of the total energy used at P&G's manufacturing facility. Steam purchased by P&G will go towards the company's goal of obtaining 30 percent of its total energy from renewable sources by 2020.
