Green Power Info
Did you know that there is a green energy power plant on the SECCRA property? Well there is- and it's fueled by the methane gas that is formed inside of our landfill. We call it SECCRA Power, and it has been in operation since 2007.
SECCRA Power produces green, renewable energy through the combustion of methane. Methane is a component of landfill gas, and is a natural byproduct of the decomposition of solid waste in a landfill. Currently, SECCRA Power is producing 2.4 Megawatts of electricity. In total, more than 1,400 homes are powered by this renewable, green power source.
