Kentucky Utilities Announce LFG Project

January 2003 - Owen Electric Cooperative and its power supplier East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) have announced plans to build the first landfill gas electric generating plant in Kentucky. The 3.2-MW facility is planned for the Bavarian Landfill in Walton, Kentucky and is scheduled to begin commercial operation in the spring of 2003. The project output will serve retail customers participating in the EnviroWatts green power program through which customers can purchase 100-kWh blocks of green power for an additional $2.75 per month. EnviroWatts is also offered by several other cooperatives that purchase power from EKPC, including Inter-County Energy, Blue Grass Energy Cooperative, and Clark Energy.
