Massachusetts Plant Will Transform Trash Into Green Energy

By Brian Spaen

What if regular household trash could transform into a renewable energy? It’s a process that Dong Energy has been studying for years and recently opened a large-scale factory in the United Kingdom to make it happen. Now they’ll be jumping into the United States and opening up a plant in Western Massachusetts.

Dong Energy, which is based in Fredericia, Denmark, chose Massachusetts over other potential states like California and Maine. Perhaps the biggest reason was the company’s involvement with the state already. Dong has a partnership with Eversource and are working on the Bay State Wind project, which is an offshore wind farm that will be developed at least 15 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard. 

The Denmark-based company has the biggest portfolio when it comes to building the renewable resource that’s starting to become popular in the United States. Just a few miles north of the project will be a separate lower-capacity wind farm from Deepwater Wind. Dong is also partnered with Dominion Energy and is constructing another offshore wind farm off the coast of Virginia.
