Ridgewood Renewable Power To Develop 41-MW Landfill Gas Plant (RI)
http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/rea/news/story?id=5...

Ridgewood Renewable Power, an owner and operator of renewable energy and infrastructure projects, announced that it plans to finance, construct and operate a 41-megawatt (MW) landfill gas-to-energy power plant at the state-run landfill in Johnston, Rhode Island. The facility would be the second largest landfill gas-to-electric power plant in the United States.

The project, which is set to be completed in three construction phases by the end of 2010, will cost approximately US $80 million. Ridgewood has maintained and operated a landfill gas-to-electric power plant at the state landfill since 1996. During the course of the past 12 years, the current facility expanded from 12 MW to 20 MW. These facilities will be decommissioned, razed and eventually buried with trash.

We are extremely pleased to be making this investment here in Rhode Island, said Randall Holmes, Ridgewood's president and CEO. This facility will be one of the most efficient and clean landfill gas-to-electric systems in the world. The agreement we have reached with the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation accommodates landfill expansion and allows us to develop a state-of-the-art facility that will benefit Rhode Island on multiple levels, said Randall Holmes, Ridgewood's president and CEO.
