Description
The Borough of Chambersburg has partnered with PPL Renewable Energy LLC and the local landfill owned by Progressive Waste Solutions, to connect the electrical output of the PPL methane-burning power plant to the residents of the Borough. The trash from Chambersburg is hauled to the landfill, decomposes, and gives off methane gas over time. The PPL methane-burning power plant converts the methane gas into electric power that is returned/injected into the Chambersburg electric system through the approximate 4-mile Express Generator Feeder (EGF). The renewable/sustainable trash-to-energy cycle officially began in 2013 and may run for 20-40 years depending on numerous factors.
