A biogas conversion project at Glenarlea Farm, Isla bank has been set-up to convert methane from dairy effluent emissions to electricity for powering the milking shed. In addition to mitigating greenhouse gas footprint, the generator saves farm owners NZD$7.11/hr that the motor is running, less $1.44/hr for maintenance costs. The farm is owned by the Fortuna Group, and the project has been overseen by consultant John Scandrett since November 2016.
