Landfill Gas

Landfill Gas

Turning Trash Into Energy

As the most economical renewable source of reliable energy, landfill gas is also sustainable... which is why it’s been part of the OUC energy portfolio since 1998.

In partnership with Orange County, we have been turning “trash into treasure” by capturing methane emissions from county landfill cells and piping it to Stanton Energy Center where it is co-fired with coal. In addition to helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the landfills, the 8-megawatt (MW) green energy program displaces more than 3 percent of the fossil fuel required for SEC Units 1 and 2 and provides enough electricity every day for 10,000 homes. The OUC facility at the Orange County Landfill produces more than 100,000 MWH of reduced-emissions power – offsetting about 44,000 tons of coal each year.

Looking to the future, OUC and Orange County have signed new agreements for future landfill projects – expanding capacity to 22 MW. OUC is also exploring a landfill gas project in Osceola County.
