Covanta Energy: Operator of Waste Incinerator
Covanta Energy Corporation (website), a New Jersey-based conglomerate, has operated a 24 megawatt municipal waste incinerator in Stanislaus County since 1988. Proposition 7 contains a provision explicitly allowing this plant to be counted as an eligible renewable energy resource -- a "clean energy facility" in the Proposition's parlance.
Covanta has been named one of the top 40 "primary responsible parties" at a New Hampshire Superfund site, and will have to pay its share of a $48 million cleanup there. 3
