Article-Republic Opens Landfill Gas to Energy Plant in North Carolina

Republic Services Inc. has partnered with two other firms to open a landfill gas to energy (LFGE) facility in Concord, N.C.

The Phoenix-based Republic said in a news release that it has opened an 11.5 megawatt LFGE facility with Fortistar and Duke Energy, near the Charlotte Motor Speedway. White Plains, N.Y.-based Fortistar constructed the renewable energy facility at Republic’s CMS landfill in Concord. The facility has begun delivering energy to Duke Energy Carolinas under a long-term power purchase agreement.

The Concord Energy Renewable Gas to Energy Plant is expected to provide power for more than 7,700 homes.

The facility uses landill gas to fuel two Solar Taurus turbines, each with the capacity to generate more than 5.5 megawatts.
