Description
Washington Electric Co-op (WEC) is a utility serving approximately 10,500 consumer/owners in Orange, Washington, and Caledonia Counties, Vermont. WEC's elected board of directors has established policies and strategies for efficient energy use and renewables. WEC developed, owns, and operates a landfill methane generating plant in Coventry, VT on a landfill owned by NEWS-VT, a subsidiary of Casella Waste Management. The plant began operating in July 2005, was expanded in 2007 and 2009, and is now supplying over two-thirds of WEC's members' power supply demand at affordable, long-term, and stable prices. A ten-minute video tour of the Coventry LFG energy plant is available via WEC's website.
