Contributed by Prince William County Solid Waste Division
Please join Solid Waste Division Chief Tom Smith, Colesville District Supervisor Martin Nohe, Kirsten Cappel from the EPA/LMOP, Fortistar President Mark Comora and Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) President and CEO Stan Feuerberg on Wednesday, December 4th at 12:00 p.m. in flipping the switch to celebrate a new 4.8 megawatt renewable landfill energy project in Prince William County.
The event will take place at our new energy facility located at the Prince William County Landfill at 14811 Dumfries Road, Manassas, Virginia.
In addition to being a significant achievement in the use of renewable energy for Prince William County, the project helps preserve the area’s environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and also makes more power available to the community.
Partnering with the County and NOVEC, we expect the facility to provide roughly 4,000 to 5,000 local homes with renewable power. This project created over 75 jobs during the construction and commissioning period.
We believe landfill energy remains a reliable, safe, and competitively priced base-load alternative that can be a part of any communities’ energy solution. We look forward to being a part of Virginia’s energy solutions now and in the future.
Media interested in attending the ceremony please RSVP to Stephen Dahlquist at (914) 421-4927 or [email protected]
