Landfill gas-to-electricity project to be largest in Georgia

EDI, Veolia Environmental Services and Energy Development, Limited, parent company of Nashville based, Energy Developments, Inc. (EDI), Green Power EMC. And Veolia ES Solid Waste, Inc., announced the expansion of EDI’s landfill gas-to-electricity plant located on the Veolia ES County Landfill in Mauk, Georgia.

Renewable power generated from this facility will be sold to Green Power EMC, under a new 15 year Power Purchase Agreement.

The existing landfill gas-to-electricity facility will be expanded from the current 4 MW to 8 MW of renewable electricity capacity making it the largest landfill gas-to-electricity facility in Georgia.

The expansion is scheduled to be completed by the end of the 2011.

Landfill gas, which is created when organic material naturally decomposes in a landfill, consists of about 50 percent methane. A reliable and readily available local alternative to fossil fuels, landfill gas can be converted to generate electricity, heat or steam, or used as an alternative vehicle fuel.

This new 4 MW expansion will bring Green Powers portfolio of renewables to over 29 MWs.
