East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) is expanding its landfill gas-to electric plant at Bavarian’s Landfill in Boone County at an approximate cost of $2.9 million. The plant, which has four existing generators, is getting an additional generating unit. All of these units are fueled by methane gas collected from within the landfill. Once the expansion is completed this month, the plant will have the capacity to produce up to 4.6 MW of electricity, which is enough to power approximately 2,500 typical Kentucky homes.
