Article-Aria Energy Expands Landfill Gas-to-Energy Operations in Florida

Aria Energy has opened a landfill-gas-to-energy facility in Nokomis, Fla.

The 4.8-megawatt facility has begun commercial operations at the Sarasota County Central County Solid Waste Disposal Complex, according to a news release. The Novi, Mich.-based Aria designed, built, owns and operates the facility and sells the electricity to Jacksonville, Fla.-based utility JEA.

The renewable energy produced at the facility is enough to supply more than 2,800 homes.

"This facility is a prime example of how municipalities, utilities and the private sector can collaborate to bring clean and reliable renewable energy to their constituents and customers,” said Richard DiGia, Aria Energy president and CEO.

Aria claims to be the largest provider of landfill gas-to-energy in Florida with a total of 32 megawatts of installed capacity. It owns and/or operates renewable energy projects across 16 states.
