EnviroWatts Generating Plant at Liberty Landfill

White County REMC along with Wabash Valley Power and Waste Management made a commitment to support a valuable renewable energy source called Green Power.  Green Power is an environmentally friendly electricity that is generated from renewable energy sources, such as the biomass at the Liberty Landfill near Buffalo.
 
Biomass gas is created when materials decay in landfills.  That gas is then captured and piped from vents to large generators where it is burned to create electricity. This process removes the gas from landfills, transforming it into a reliable source of energy.  The Enviro-Watts Liberty Landfill Gas Generation Plant, owned by Wabash Valley Power and managed by Waste Management, houses two generating plants that produce 6.9 megawatts of Green Power.
