The 4.8 MW Pecan Row landfill gas-to-electricity facility has been completed at the Pecan Row landfill in Valdosta, Ga.

Advanced Disposal partnered with Energy Systems Group (ESG) to design, build, own and operate the installation. Green Power EMC, a nonprofit corporation comprising 38 member-owned electric cooperatives in Georgia, will purchase the power via a long-term power purchase agreement.

ESG notes that the facility produces power by capturing landfill gas emitted from decomposing trash to use as a fuel source for power generators.
