The plant will create dozens of full time, higher-paying jobs to stimulate economic growth in the community.
The natural gas produced will be produced in-state, keeping the products and jobs local.
The burning of agricultural waste negatively impacts the quality of air in the San Joaquin Valley. By offering an outlet for agricultural waste, the plant helps to protect the assets of farmers.
Raising the air quality of the San Joaquin valley to meet national standards poses a significant challenge. Through carbon sequestration, clean fuel production, and the reduction of diesel trucks and agricultural burning, the McFarland project will pioneer a string of plants designed to protect and restore the environment of the San Joaquin valley. Find out more about our atmospheric impact.
The San Joaquin Valley is being drained by over pumping for groundwater. The plant will produce more than 36,000 gallons of clean irrigation water daily to restore vitality to the land. To learn more about groundwater, visit the Groundwater Exchange website.
