Dairyland Power invests in gas-to-energy plants

LaCrosse, WI— Dairyland Power Cooperative has invested in more renewable energy for its members by purchasing the electricity from two landfill gas-to-energy facilities, owned by Waste Management, Inc. The generating facilities are sited at the Timberline Trail Landfill near Bruce, Wisconsin and the Central Disposal Landfill near Lake Mills, Iowa.

Methane gas is used to generate renewable energy. The 3.2 megawatt (MW) Timberline Trail facility can power 2,700 homes. The 4.8 MW Central Disposal facility can power 4,000 homes.

Dairyland receives energy from a third such plant, the 3 MW ONYX Seven Mile Creek Landfill gas-to-energy facility in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The generating plant, owned and operated by Dairyland, is expected to expand in 2007.
