Purchase of Power Generated at Prairie Bluff Sanitary Landfill
Chickasaw County, Mississippi
On December 15, 2011, TVA completed an environmental assessment (EA) and issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for a proposed power purchase agreement for electricity generated at the Prairie Bluff Sanitary Landfill.
Waste Management Renewable Energy LLC is planning to construct and operate a landfill gas-fueled generator, with a total capacity of 1.6 megawatts at the facility. The new generator would be installed in a previously disturbed area adjacent to the existing landfill. The EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the construction of the new generators and associated auxiliary systems and the operation of the generating facility.
