Ameresco Inc. recently joined local California officials and energy industry stakeholders to commemorate the completion of its 1.4 MW landfill gas-to-energy (LFGTE) project at the Johnson Canyon Landfill in Gonzales, Calif.

Ameresco designed, permitted, constructed and now operates the LFGTE facility at the landfill, which is owned by the Salinas Valley Solid Waste Authority (SVSWA). Ameresco Johnson Canyon LLC has an agreement with the SVSWA to purchase the landfill gas for use in its plant and has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the City of Palo Alto, Calif., for the renewable energy. Ameresco adds that a portion of the revenues from the power sale will be returned to the SVSWA for the duration of the contract.

“Partnering with Ameresco on this state-of-the-art landfill gas-to-energy project will not only help our city become more energy efficient, but will also provide a more sustainable future for Palo Alto and its residents,” said Palo Alto Mayor Gregory Scharff. “This project not only generates enough clean energy to power nearly 1,000 homes, but will reduce our community’s carbon footprint.”
