Hometown BioEnergy/ Sustainable Energy

Hometown BioEnergy Minnesota Municipal Power Agency

Hometown BioEnergy (HTBE) is an important component of MMPA’s commitment towards local, sustainable energy production. Hometown BioEnergy generates power from food processing wastes creating electricity, liquid fertilizer and solid fuel.

Electricity: Supplies Power Locally

Biogas is used to produce electricity, which is delivered directly to the City of Le Sueur.

Liquid Fertilizer: Supports Local Farmers

Nutrient rich liquid fertilizer by-product is sold to local farmers at a competitive price.

Solid Fuel: Replaces Coal

Undigested biomass is dried to create solid  fuel, which is burned off site in biomass and coal fired boilers.

Local and Sustainable Electricity

The electricity from the facility is used by MMPA  to help meet the state-mandated requirement of 25 percent of electricity from renewable sources by the year 2025.
