A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held to commemorate completion of a landfill gas-to-energy project at the Pecan Row Landfill in Valdosta, Ga.  The 4.8-MW project is expected to generate enough energy to power approximately 2,000 homes.

Advanced Disposal partnered with Energy Systems Group to design, build, own and operate the project. Power produced at the facility will be purchased by Green Power EMC via a long-term power purchase agreement. Green Power is a nonprofit corporation comprised of 38 member-owned electric cooperatives in Georgia. The mission of the group is to facilitate the procurement and marketing of renewable energy in Georgia and make it available to member cooperatives.

“This marks ESG’s third landfill gas project in Georgia, and our sixth in the United States, further exemplifying our strong focus on developing sustainable infrastructure solutions,” said Greg Collins, president of ESG.
