Soldotna Landfill Gas Project

HEA and the Kenai Peninsula Borough (KPB) are partnering in a Landfill Gas engineering and financial analysis that lays out a business plan to install a Landfill Gas facility at the KPB landfill. The costs are to be shared in a 50% split by both parties. This project would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while also producing lower cost electricity for HEA members. In addition, this project would further HEA in accomplishing 18% of its annual energy needs into renewables by the end of 2022.Aerial view of the Central Peninsula Landfill, Skyview School, and the pipeline or powerline

This project has some real merit and the business plan should be completed by the end of 2019.
