Source: News Room

By the end of the year, South Carolina's BMW plant in Greer will be powered by methane from a Spartanburg County landfill. Turbines at the plant will generate up to 4.8 megawatts of power, enough to heat 10,000 homes and to supply a fifth of the plant's energy needs. The project will be the largest of its kind in South Carolina, according to a database maintained by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Nationwide, BMW's project would rank 92nd among 439 planned or operating projects generating electricity.
