Located in Sterling, CT, near the border of the state of Rhode Island, is the Exeter Energy plant. This a 31 megawatt waste tire-fueled power plant. The facility utilizes whole and shredded tires as primary fuel, and propane for startup and shutdown.

The plant generates approximately 200,000 megawatt-hours of electricity a year, which is equivalent to conserving approximately 480,000 barrels of oil annually. The plant qualifies as a Class II renewable energy source. Electricity from the plant is directed along an 8.5 mile underground cable system for final sale into the regional electricity market.

CMS Enterprises operates the plant and is its sole owner.
