San Diego-based enXco has purchased Beacon Landfill Gas Holdings LLC, a company whose assets include two landfill gas-to-energy (LFGTE) facilities located in western Pennsylvania. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The LFGTE facilities are located at the Imperial and Greentree landfills, operated by Republic Services and Veolia ES Solid Waste, respectively. The facilities produce a total of 50 megawatts of electricity.
“The acquisition of facilities that process landfill gas that can be consumed in generating plants complements enXco’s mission to grow a portfolio of renewable generating assets for EDF Energies Nouvelles [enXco’s parent company] in North America,” said Tristan Grimbert, president & CEO of enXco, in a press release. “We are proud to make the Beacon projects our first entry into the North American LFG sector and hope to build on this success with the addition of LFG generating plants, which together with wind and solar round out our portfolio of assets.”
