Renewable Landfill Gas to Energy Project

Renewable Landfill Gas to Energy Project

EPP Renewable Energy owns and operates a 4.8- megawatt landfill gas-to-energy plant at the CCIA Solid Waste Complex.  The CCIA provides the landfill three gas-to-fuel engines that produce approximately 37.8 million kilowatt-hours, enough electricity to power 3,000 homes.

This landfill gas-to-energy plant reduces annual emissions by 26,000 tons of carbon dioxide. According to the EPA, the reduction of emissions is equivalent to any one of these annual environmental benefits:

  • Removing 5,100 cars from the road.
  • Planting 5,500 acres of pine forest.
  • Reducing the import of 60,600 barrels of oil.
