KY County Seeks Landfill Gas-to-Energy Operator (Ind. Report)
Landfill Gas
Date: 2020-01-20
In the Bluegrass State, Daviess Fiscal Court -- the Daviess county administration agency -- reports it is in negotiations with respondents to its recent RFP for methane gas capture and power production at the Daviess County Landfill.

Currently, the 20 gas wells underneath the landfill produce almost 3.9 million gpd of methane which could be significantly increased with the addition of more wells, the county notes.

In 2009, the county negotiated a 20-year contract with E.ON U.S., the corporation that operated Kentucky Utilities and Louisville Gas & Electric Co, in the hopes that they could generate $2 million over the course of the contract. Ultimately, E.ON U.S. was purchased by PPL Corp., and due to a then low market the deal fell through.

NH Landfill Gas-to-Energy Funding Decision Near (Ind. Report)
Lebanon New Hampshire
Date: 2019-12-09
In New Hampshire, the West Lebanon City Council is expected to vote later this month whether to bond an additional $1.5 million needed to complete a $4.4 million landfill gas methane-to-energy project at the Lebanon landfill. If approved, the project could begin construction in May for completion by the end of 2020.

The city proposes to use micro-turbine generators to turn methane emitted from the landfill into electricity, most of which would be used to power municipal buildings with the balance sold back into Liberty Utilities' system.

The project is expected to generate roughly $130,000 in revenue annually, or about $5 million over its 20-year lifespan. (Source: City of West Lebanon, Valley News, 8 Dec., 2019) Contact: City of West Lebanon, Shaun Mulholland, City Manager, 603-448-4220,,
