Renewable energy facility to
be installed in Pennsylvania
PPL Renewable Energy, a subsidiary of PPL Corporation,
will develop and install a 6.4 megawatt methane-to-electricity power generation
system at the Community Refuse Service Landfill in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.
Community Refuse Service Landfill will provide 3.2 million
cubic feet of methane gas every day to power four Caterpillar generators
at the 250-acre facility. The companies expect the project to be operational
by December 31, 2008.
The power generated by the facility will be purchased by
PPL EnergyPlus, which will market the generation output and renewable energy
credits to increase development of renewable energy projects.
