ecomaine earns millions from electricity

ecomaine, a non-profit, municipally owned and operated waste disposal company, concluded its 2007 fiscal year with total revenues of $5.365 million from the sale of electricity – a seven year high. The electricity is made by ecomaine’s waste-to-energy plant, which uses the un-recyclable trash from 28 municipalities as fuel for a steam generator.

The sale of electricity helps to pay costs of ecomaine’s total operation.
