How Buffett’s $10 Billion Pipeline Deal Is Doing Environmental Double Duty Helping Dominion Energy Turn Acres Of Manure Into Clean Power

Christopher Helman writes on Forbes how Warren Buffet’s $10 billion pipeline deal is doing environmental double duty helping Dominion Energy turn acres of manure into clean power.

The C3 Take
  • Over the last 15 years, Dominion Energy has slashed its emissions by 52%.
  • Berkshire Hathway is investing billions of dollars into Dominion’s agriculture-derived gas projects.
  • In addition to innovations in agriculture-derived gas, Dominion has invested money into solar projects.

“Over the next decade, Dominion aims to invest $650 million into agriculture-derived gas projects. Smithfield will contribute another $250 million. The expected result: 8 billion cubic feet per year of livestock gas—thus preventing the emissions equivalent of 3.5 million tons per year of carbon dioxide. That’s like taking 750,000 cars permanently off the road, or planting 60 million new trees every year.”
