The Tarrytown, N.Y.-based Broadrock Renewables LLC said in a news release that the new facility at Orange County’s Olinda Alpha Landfill in Brea has a generating capacity of 32.5 megawatts of energy capacity. Broadrock adds its existing 5 megawatts to that capacity total.
The U.S. Department of Energy provided a $10 million stimulus grant for the project.
The city of Anaheim is purchasing the electricity and the city of Brea provided infrastructure support.
