“Green Energy” Project

The DeKalb County Seminole Road Landfill “Green Energy” Project generates revenue for DeKalb County, Georgia, from the sale of green power to the local electric power utility grid. Two Cat gensets, producing 3.2 MW of electric power per hour, generate enough power for approximately 2,500 homes. The project allows DeKalb County to take otherwise wasted energy and use it to generate electricity, which benefits the environment and area residents through lower emissions.
