Hoosier Energy and Randolph Farms Landfill are forming a partnership that will turn landfill gas into a renewable energy resource for Randolph County, Indiana.
Hoosier Energy will build the Cabin Creek renewable energy project, a 4-megawatt landfill gas facility, at the Randolph Farms Landfill in rural east-central Indiana.
The renewable energy plant will be the fourth landfill methane gas facility for the electric power supply cooperative and the first landfill gas partneship with the Kalamazoo, Michigan-based waste and recycling company.
The 156-acre Randolph Farms Landfill is located near Modoc, Indiana. Through the partnership with Randolph Farms, Hoosier Energy will capture landfill methane gas, which occurs naturally from decomposing waste, and use it to generate electricity.
