Hernando County Landfill Electric Generation

Ridge Manor, Florida

United States

Landfill Gas Capture

Technical details

This project captures the methane produced from decomposing materials and prevents them from being released into the atmosphere.

The project voluntarily collects landfill gas from the Hernando County Northwest Landfill. The landfill gas is use to operate a CAT 3520 electric generator which produces 1,600 kw.

Cloverly buys offsets that meet accepted standards for being real, measurable, verifiable, permanent, and additional. "Additional" means that the carbon savings would not have happened without the offset project and that the project would not have happened unless it got certified to sell carbon offsets. Climate Action Reserve oversees verification of the Hernando County Landfill Electric Generation Project. You can find verification documents at https://thereserve2.apx.com/mymodule/reg/TabDocuments.asp?r=111&ad=Prpt&act=update&type=PRO&aProj=pub&tablename=doc&id1=422.
