NOVEC Energy Production
NOVEC has practiced environmental stewardship for more than four decades, and is now distributing more renewable energy than ever before.
Halifax County Biomass Plant
To supply customers with more renewable energy, NOVEC built its first-ever power plant — the NOVEC Energy Production Halifax County Biomass Plant. The Co-op opened the plant near South Boston, Virginia, in 2013. The plant has the capacity to generate roughly 50 megawatts of power at gross or 45 megawatts at net— enough electricity to power about 16,000 homes.
NOVEC distributes 100 percent of the renewable energy produced by five generators at the Prince William County Landfill. The generators use gas from decaying trash as fuel for creating 6.7 megawatts of electricity — enough to power 5,000 homes, a school-bus garage, and an animal shelter.
NOVEC has assists customers interested in connecting their solar-energy systems to the grid through net metering since 2003. In early 2017, NOVEC Solutions, an affiliated for-profit NOVEC company, joined forces with ProspectSolar to help provide solar photovoltaic systems to interested customers.
