U.S. Congressman-Elect Doug LaMalfa and local leaders will join Ameresco executives for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to recognize the completion of construction on the 2.2 megawatt (MW) landfill gas-to-energy project at Butte County’s Neal Road landfill. The only one-of-its- kind north of Sacramento, the facility will collect methane gas produced by decaying organic materials and process it to generate power, with a portion of the revenues from the sale of that power returned to the County for the duration of the 20-year contract. Projected to expand to 4.3 MW, Ameresco designed, built, owns, operates and maintains the facility, which generates enough clean energy to power over 1,300 homes.
Speakers and Invited Guests include:
- U.S. Congressman-Elect Doug LaMalfa
- Steve Lambert, Chair for the Board of Supervisors, Butte County
- Butte County Officials
- Ameresco Executives
