Potrero Hills Energy Producers, a partnership between Michigan-based DTE Biomass Energy Inc. and Greenville-based Pacolet Milliken Enterprises, recently started generating electricity from landfill gas. This cleaner source of electricity comes from a newly constructed renewable energy facility at the Potrero Hills Landfill in Suisun City, Calif.

The power plant uses advanced engine-generating technology to deliver enough renewable electricity to power 10,000 California homes. The landfill gas-to-energy facility is equipped with advanced environmental controls that treat incoming landfill gas to reduce sulfur content prior to combustion, thereby reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide.

“This project will help California meet its renewable energy goals, and we’re proud to be a part of that,” said Ralph Walker, executive VP of Pacolet Milliken Enterprises. “Converting waste to power is good for the environment and the community.”
