Big Smile Wind Farm at Dempsey Ridge (formerly Dempsey Ridge) is ACCIONA’s third renewable-energy project in the state of Oklahoma. Well known for its vast oil and natural gas reserves, Oklahoma will come to be recognized for its wind resources as well, currently ranking in the top 10 U.S. states for wind-energy potential.
Abandoned coal mine methane capture
The first verified abandoned coal mine methane capture project under a new Voluntary Carbon Standard methodology designed to quantify the emissions reductions from this type of project.
Improved Forest Management
The Arcata City Forest Barnum Tract is a community forest located in Northern California creating verified carbon offsets through the Climate Action Reserve’s (CAR) Forest Project Protocol.
Landfill gas capture
Carbon offsets are currently the only source of revenue for the operation of this project because the quantity of landfill gas available is too small to enable investment in electricity generators.
