On Dec. 5, California and Butte County officials will join executives from Framingham, Mass.-based Ameresco Inc. to mark the completion of a 2.2 MW landfill gas-to-energy project at Butte County's Neal Road landfill in Paradise, Calif.

The facility will collect methane gas produced by decaying organic materials and process it to generate power, with a portion of the revenues from the sale of that power returned to the county for the duration of a 20-year contract. Ameresco, which designed, built, owns, operates and maintains the facility, says it plans to expand the facility to 4.3 MW.
