Jacoby Energy

Jacoby Energy operates as a developer in the field of renewable and alternative energy systems. The company’s primary focus is the $54 billion market for municipal solid waste (MSW), most of which currently goes to landfills.

Jacoby Energy’s mission and business strategy is centered on the conversion of this waste to useful products including energy and petrochemicals.

Azalea Solar

The Azalea Solar project is a 10 megawatt solar photovoltaic generation facility that will be located on approximately 80 acres of land in Washington County, Georgia. Smart Energy Capital, LLC and Jacoby Development, Inc. are co-developers of this project.

The project has entered into a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement with Cobb Electric Membership Corporation for the sale of all power and environmental attributes generated by the solar facility. Cobb EMC is one of the largest of Georgia’s 42 electric membership cooperatives, and serves approximately 200,000 residential and commercial customers. When complete, the project will be the largest utility-scale solar photovoltaic facility in Georgia. It will be designed as a fixed- tilt photovoltaic system that will generate 15,000 MW of electricity in its first year of operation enough power to power 1,500 homes. This ground-mounted solar facility is expected to be complete in 2013 and create up to 75 local construction jobs.

Azalea Solar was acquired by Dominion Resources in March 2013.

Live Oak Landfill Bio Methane Gas

Jacoby Energy led a team which included Waste Management, DeKalb County, and Atlanta Gas Light Company to develop a $30 million landfill- gas-to-pipeline quality bio methane project. Jacoby Energy managed the design, construction, and operation of this facility which purifies the landfill gas to high-BTU standards for injection into the AGL natural gas pipeline system. In February 2009 the first gas from the Live Oak project entered the AGL pipeline. The plant uses the Air Liquide MEDAL system which employs a combination of pressure swing adsorption and membrane technologies. Air Liquide acquired GeoRecover Live Oak from Jacoby Energy in 2012.

The project is one of only two high-BTU landfill gas projects in the state of Georgia and one of the largest of the 40 such projects that have been developed in the US. It generates enough renewable bio methane to power 30,000 homes.

Horizon Fuels

Horizon Fuels is a Jacoby Energy company formed to promote the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and other clean fuels for the transportation market. We are currently developing CNG refueling stations that provide economic and environmental benefits to fleet customers as well as the public at large. Horizon Fuels is targeting the southeastern United States for its CNG projects.
