The utility firm Hoosier Energy,  Bloomington, Indiana, has started up its latest landfill methane generation facility in Rockford, Illinois. The station is located at Advance Disposal’s landfill in Davis Junction, Illinois. The engines are presently being tested and synched to Hoosier’s grid. The company expects to be producing power onto the grid sometime by the middle to the end of this November.

The 16-megawatt Orchard Hills Generation Station is able to convert landfill gas into electricity.
