The Development Authority of the North Country (DANC) is considering adding another possibly two more methane gas-to-electric generators in the near future to its landfill in Rodman, NY. That project already has three 1.6-megawatt turbines, producing 4.8 megawatts of electricity sold to the grid. Currently, the DANC is working with the federal Environmental Protection Agency to obtain a permit allowing the additional turbines. Even though more gas has is being produced than originally anticipated, the operators are concerned about future waste volumes, which have been down with economic weakness, and the need to drill additional collection wells.
