LaGrange, GA Considers LFG Deal with Savannah Energy

By Alicia Hill, LaGrange Daily News.

LaGRANGE – Less than an hour after returning from a walk through at Great Wolf Lodge, LaGrange City Council began its regular work session with discussion on another major project that is in the works for the city.

This time instead of harnessing the power (and funds) of out-of-town visitors, the city hopes to use the power of the gas generated by the LaGrange landfill to bring additional income into the city.

LaGrange has had a program to extract and use landfill gas for several years, but over time the equipment has required more and more repairs. So, when a global leader in energy services contacted the city asking to take over using their own funding, officials took the proposal very seriously.
