                            Milner Butte Landfill Gas Project
                                    $154,000 Funding Award
                                           REEZ No. 1a

The Milner Butte Landfill in Cassia County is owned and operated by Southern Idaho Solid
Waste (SISW), a special purpose unit of local government formed by 7 south central Idaho
counties. The landfill is located approximately 25 miles east of Twin Falls and 12 miles west of
Burley, Idaho. It began operating in April, 1994. The permitted design capacity of the landfill is
15 million cubic yards. Approximately 75% of the permitted landfill capacity remains, which at
the current rate of disposal allows for an additional 41 years of operation. The landfill was deve-
loped and constructed on a 480-acre parcel and the approved footprint of the landfill is 115 acres.

The landfill is currently collecting and flaring 310 cfm of landfill gas (LFG). The purpose of this
project is to provide funding to add to the existing captured landfill gas (LFG) collection system
by installing 3-6 vertical LFG wells. Additional wells will increase the amount of LFG collected
by an estimated 25-30%. The combined landfill gas captured will generate approximately 1.6
MW of electrical power. Once the amount of additional LFG is confirmed, facilities will be
designed and constructed to route the gas to a plant that converts landfill gas to electricity.
Electricity generated by the facility will be sold to an electric utility.

Specific tasks needed to complete this project will include, but not be limited the following:
1. Locate and design extension of the gas collection piping system with up to 6 additional
   vertical wells in Cell 1, 2 and 3 of the landfill.
2. Prepare and issue an RFP for construction of the gas collection system extension system.
3. Evaluate, select and make agreement with party to drill the wells and install the gas
   collection piping system.
4. Drill wells and connected to gas collection and monitoring system.
5. Monitor gas production for gas collection system extension 60-90 days to determine the
   amount of additional LFG gas that can be used for power production.
5. Prepare and issue a RFP to design, build and operate a landfill gas-to-electricity facility
   including the utility power sales and utility interconnection agreements.
6. Construct a permanent LFG power generation plant and obtain utility sales and
   interconnection agreements.
7. Begin operation of the electricity generating facility that utilizes the LFG that was flared and
   the additional LFG that is collected by gas collection system extension.

            Nampa Wastewater Treatment Plant Biogas Boiler Project
                                    $143,738 Funding Award
                                            REEZ No. 5a




The City of Nampa will purchase and install a biogas-fueled 2,500 MBH boiler, a 1,000 MBH
heat exchanger, and related heat conveyance equipment and piping at its wastewater treatment
plant. The new system will provide heat to the plant’s anaerobic digesters and the
Administration Building. Currently this job is being inadequately performed by two biogas-
fueled boilers. One of the existing boilers is old and inefficient and the other is a two year old
unit. The exiting boilers do not have enough capacity to keep up with the plant’s heating needs
nor do they provide adequate redundancy in case of a boiler failure.

In parallel with this project, the city is installing a second new 2,500 MBH boiler and related
equipment. These two boilers will meet the plants existing and future heat needs. The city will
keep the two existing boilers and will continue to use the existing newer unit and mothball the
older unit so it can be available as a backup. The two new boilers (one being installed by this
project) will improve the efficiency of the use and the amount of energy used from the plant’s
biogas resource.

Specific tasks and equipment needed to complete this project will include, but not be limited the
following:

   1. Purchase and install a Burnham 2,500 MBH boiler inside of the existing Nampa
      Wastewater Treatment Plant Digester Control Building.
   2. Purchase and install one Alfa Laval 1,000 MBH heat exchanger inside the new Digester
      Control Building
   3. Purchase and install related miscellaneous piping, fittings and equipment for the
      conveyance of the heated water from the boiler to heat exchanger.
   4. Make newly installed boiler and heat exchanger operational, including training, testing
      and calibration.

The anticipated project completion date is August 2010 (Contracted to December 31, 2010).

The City of Franklin will install a small hydropower facility at the city water plant facilities. The
facility will use water diverted for the city’s water. The plant will be a net metering system
connected with Rocky Mountain Power that will reduce the city’s electric bill. The city’s water
system experiences frequent problems receiving water from the Crooked Creek Spring due to
airlocks in the intake pipes. In addition to offsetting the city electrical costs with the hydropower
system, the project will realign the waterline to eliminate the air lock problem. The cost savings
realized from this project will enable the city to improve existing services and provide new
services to the community.

The City of Franklin will:

7. Establish a Steering Committee composed of local leaders involved in or impacted by the
    project to meet with any project subcontractors on a regular basis to review progress and
    provide feedback to the city council.
8. Secure approval of the project from the State Historic Preservation Office.
9. Develop, submit and obtain a water right permit for the project.
10. Complete an engineering design of the facility.

                                PROJECT STATEMENT OF WORK
         Adams County Woody Biomass Power Generation Business Plan
                                       $70,000 Funding Award
                                              REEZ No. 1b

Since 2006, Adams County has aggressively investigated the possibility of constructing a woody
biomass generation or cogeneration (CHP) plant. This included the development of the Woody
Biomass Utilization Partnership which includes a Biomass Coordinator, three counties and several
Ad Hoc members. The Partnership, formed in 2007 as a 501 c 3 non-profit, has and continues to
invest considerable time, money and resources toward removing barriers to woody biomass industry
development. A previous feasibility study commissioned by Adams County indicated that nearby
biomass resources are capable of supporting a 10-megawatt power plant. Adams County would like
to develop the biomass generation plant at a site adjacent to the Adams County Landfill. The
purpose of this funding is to develop a Project Development and Business Plan for a biomass power
generation project that would be useful to potential project developers and funding institutions.

The Project Development and Business Plan will include, but is not limited to, the following:
1. An executive summary that summarizes the plan and why a biomass generation plant in Adams
   County would be an attractive investment.
2. An introduction that provides the background and explains the scope and purpose of the Project
   Development and Business Plan.
3. A summary of previous assessments of the woody biomass availability in the region, how much may
   be obtained under short and long-term contracts and the cost for the woody biomass feedstock at the
   source and delivered. The plan will include financial arrangements of bringing woody biomass
   feedstock to the proposed facility, handling and storage of the feedstock, how various amounts will be
   managed, and an agreement template with the Forest Service, State, and private entities on providing
   or making woody biomass available to the facility.
6. The plan will show process design for the generation facility. The process design will include a
   description of the facilities footprint, equipment, processes, byproducts, as well as the permitting,
   capital and operational costs, and a preliminary construction schedule. The plan will also have a
   discussion of the facility site considerations, permitting requirements, utility issues and site
   commitment issues.
7. A discussion of the market(s) for the electricity, including access to those markets, anticipated power
   purchase agreement (PPA) and discussion of the subsequent revenues and return on the investment.
8. An assessment of the financing options and development of a financing plan including cost
   effectiveness, barriers, and risks. Ensure that the economic performance of the project predicts an
   adequate debt coverage ratio such that a responsible lender will lend the funds necessary to build the
   project.
9. The plan will include a discussion of a proposed operational plan, business structure, and strategies
   that would help assure the success of the facility.

The anticipated completion of the Plan is December 31, 2010 (contracted to March 31, 2011).

                              PROJECT STATEMENT OF WORK
            City of Hailey Resources Recovery Center Feasibility Study
                                     $30,000 Funding Award
                                               REEZ No. 5b

The City of Hailey, in partnership with Whole Water Systems and Whole Energy Solar of
Ketchum, will conduct a study to assess the viability of developing a Resource Recovery Center
(RRC) within the community. The concept of the RRC is to receive and process sewage
treatment plant sludge, septage from onsite septic systems within Blaine County, grease from
restaurants and a wide variety of other potential biosolids wastes including agriculture animal
waste, food waste from restaurants, grocery stores and homes. The waste material will be used
as feedstock with a technology is known as a Vertical-Shaft Biological Reactor (VBR). The
VBR is an activated sludge technology creates heat and treated water suitable for non-potable
reuse and pathogen free, Class A biosolids.

The focus of the study will be to demonstrate the technological and economic potential for
capturing the heat generated by the biological processes of the VBR for purposes of heating
nearby buildings. The Study will further examine the potential for the RRC to be the heart of a
larger development serving the broader purposes of education, local food production and a
hands-on sustainable technology showcase.

The feasibility study will include, but is not limited to, the following:
1.   An executive summary that summarizes the findings of the study and any
     recommendations.
2.   An introduction that provides the background and explains the scope and purpose of the
     study.
3.   A detailed assessment of the availability of the sewage treatment plant sludge, septage from
     onsite septic systems, grease and of other potential biosolids wastes (feedstock) in the
     region, how much may be obtained under long-term contract. The costs and logistics
     associated with providing the feedstock to a central location.
4.   Based on the estimates of feedstock availability, the study will include conceptual design of
     the Resource Recovery Center (RRC) that describes the site development, on-site facilities,
     equipment and processes.
5.   An estimate of the heat that would be generated by the facility. The study will address the
     capital and operational costs, and the markets for the heat and subsequent revenues or
     energy savings.
7.   A discussion of the facility site location considerations, permitting requirements,
     development risks and public acceptance issues.
8.   The study conclusions and recommendations including cost effectiveness, barriers, and
     financing options.

The anticipated project completion date is January 31, 2011 (Contracted to March 31, 2011).

             Boise County Woody Biomass CHP Feasibility Study
                                 $140,000 Funding Award
                                        REEZ No. 10b

Boise County will develop, initiate, implement and complete a study that will analyze the
feasibility of woody biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant within Boise County.
In 2008, Boise County contracted with the McKinstry Company to develop a study in order
to determine if this type of project is feasible within the county. The results of that study
indicated a CHP plant may be feasible in the Horseshoe Bend area. Fuel supply, sizing of
the plant and a detailed financial analysis need to be completed to finalize a study that can
be used to finance the design and construction of the project.

The feasibility study will include, but is not limited to, the following:
1. An executive summary that summarizes the findings of the study and any
   recommendations.
2. An introduction that provides the background and explains the scope and purpose of the
   study.
3. A detailed assessment of the woody biomass (feedstock) availability in the region, how
   much may be obtained under long-term contract and the cost for the feedstock at the
   source and delivered. The assessment will identify specific potential public and private
   biomass supply in the region which could potentially be used as feedstock for a CHP
   facility. The assessment should discuss all potential sources of fuel that may be used for
   a CHP plant including wood manufacturing waste, wood chips, sawdust, forest thinnings
   and removals.
4. Based on the estimates of feedstock availability, the study will include conceptual
   design of the CHP facility that describes the site development, on-site facilities,
   equipment and processes.
5. An estimate of the electricity and heat that would be generated by the facility. The study
   will address the capital and operational costs, and the energy markets for the electricity
   and heat and subsequent revenues.
7. A discussion of the facility site location considerations, permitting requirements, and
   utility issues.
8. The study conclusions and recommendations including cost effectiveness, barriers, and
   financing options.


The anticipated project completion date is December 31, 2010.

                  Amalgamated Sugar Biogas Feasibility Study
                                    $37,290 Funding Award
                                          REEZ No. 13b

The City of Nampa, in coordination with Amalgamated Sugar Company, will commission a
feasibility study to evaluate the potential for production of and use of biogas at the Amalgamated
Sugar’s processing facility in Nampa. The two sources for biogas production at the plant are the
beet flume water and the main facility outfall. The beet flume is a closed water loop that
accumulates organics during the beet-processing season of approximately 120 days annually.
Available data indicate a chemical oxygen demand (COD) addition to this system on the order of
60,000 pounds daily. At the end of the processing season, these waters are treated in an aerobic
treatment pond prior to discharge to the City of Nampa’s wastewater treatment system. This
aerobic treatment requires on average 1,181,188 kWh of electric energy (~$60,000 at 5¢/kWh)
per year. The main facility outfall wastewater receives primary treatment (clarification and
aeration) on site to reduce COD and suspended solids. The outfall produces about 17,000 pounds
of COD per day during the beet-processing season and 12,000 pounds of COD per day during the
non-beet processing period.


The feasibility study will include, but is not limited to, the following:
1. An executive summary that summarizes the findings of the study and any recommendations.
2. An introduction that provides the background and explains the scope and purpose of the
   study.
3. An assessment of the two feedstock streams, the beet flume water and the main facility
   outfall, for biogas and energy production potential.
4. An evaluation of the various process options for converting the COD in the two streams into
   biogas. The evaluation will include process flow diagrams for the various options
5. The study will include conceptual design and site layout of waste-to-energy facility. The
   conceptual design and site layout will include a description of the facilities footprint,
   equipment, processes, byproducts, as well as the permitting, capital and operational costs.
6. A discussion of the market(s) for the electricity, including access to those markets,
   anticipated revenues and return on the investment.
7. A discussion of the facility site location considerations, permitting requirements, and utility
   issues.
8. The study conclusions and recommendations including cost effectiveness, barriers, risks and
   financing options.

The anticipated project completion date is Sept. 1, 2010 (Contracted to December 31, 2010).

                   Clark County Waste-to-Energy Plant Feasibility Study
                                       $113,015 Funding Award
                                                REEZ No. 7a

As part of an ongoing economic development program, Clark County is establishing an energy
park on a 113-acre parcel within the City of Dubois. The anchor facility at the park is a proposed
Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant. The concept of the facility is to gasify the municipal solid waste
(MSW) from Clark and surrounding counties to make electricity. In addition to MSW, the plant
may be able to use agricultural waste and woody biomass available in the region for feedstock.
The current plan is to provide about 250 tons of feedstock per day to the facility and have a plant
capacity in the range of 12 to 14 MW. The County will commission a study to assess the
feasibility of the WTE plant. Specifically the study will assess the availability and associated cost
of providing MSW, agricultural waste and woody biomass to the proposed energy park. In
addition, the study will evaluate the thermo-chemical technology provided by Dynamis Energy
LLC and determine if using it would be cost effective and environmentally acceptable.

The feasibility study will include, but is not limited to, the following:
1.   An executive summary that summarizes the findings of the study and any recommendations.
2.   An introduction that provides the background and explains the scope and purpose of the study.
3.   A assessment of the municipal solid waste (MSW) availability in the region, how much may be
     obtained under long-term contract and the financial arrangements and impacts of bringing MSW
     feedstock to the proposed facility. The assessment will include costs of handling and storage of the
     MSW, how various amounts will be managed, and an agreement template with neighboring counties
     on providing MSW to the proposed waste-to-energy (WTE) facility.
4.   A assessment of the potential agricultural waste availability in the region, how much may be obtained
     under long-term contract and the cost for the agricultural waste feedstock at the source and delivered.
     The assessment will include costs of handling and storage of the agricultural waste, how various
     amounts will be managed, and an agreement template with agricultural waste providers.
5.   A assessment of the woody biomass feedstock availability in the region, how much may be obtained
     under long-term contract and the cost for the woody biomass feedstock at the source and delivered.
     The assessment will identify specific potential public and private biomass supply in the region which
     could potentially be used as feedstock for a waste-to-energy (WTE) facility. The assessment should
     discuss all potential sources of fuel that may be used for a WTE plant including wood manufacturing
     waste, wood chips, sawdust, forest thinnings and removals.
6.   The study will include conceptual design of the Dynamis Energy thermo-chemical technology facility
     that can process approximately 250 tons per day of MSW. The conceptual design will include a
     description of the facilities footprint, equipment, processes, byproducts, as well as the permitting,
     capital and operational costs.
7.   A discussion of the market(s) for the electricity, including access to those markets, anticipated
     revenues and return on the investment.
8.   A discussion of the facility site location considerations, permitting requirements, and utility issues.
9.   The study conclusions and recommendations including cost effectiveness, barriers, risks and financing
     options.

The anticipated project completion date is July 1, 2010 (Contracted to December 31, 2010).
