Methane to Electricity

“KCP&L District Manager Matt Dority says there are currently 47 wells at the landfill, collecting methane gas, a natural byproduct of landfill operations.
The wells, anywhere from 30 to 90 feet deep, collect the gas and route it to the new 1.6-megawatt power plant. The plant then generates enough electricity to serve about a thousand customers.”

Looking forward to more methane power plants!
