Procter & Gamble's Wyoming County Facility Becomes Energy Self-Sufficient

November 27, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble’s manufacturing facility in Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, achieved energy self-sufficiency after installing the Cogen2 cogenerator power plant. Before completing the cogenerator, the factory was the largest electricity and natural gas customer for local utilities for 45 years. In 2012, the facility sourced 50 percent of its power requirements from the Marcellus gas discovered in 2009 underground its property. After the gas discovery, P&G worked with energy firms Citrus and UGI to develop and harness the gas and make the facility energy self-sufficient.
