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.
