Green Gas buys Lime Energy's landfill gas project
Lime Energy has sold its 2.8MW landfill gas-to-energy project in Florida to Green Gas Americas, a developer of waste gas to power projects.
The sale came about through the acquisition of GES-Port Charlotte, a subsidiary of Lime Energy, which owns the landfill gas facility.
The plant, built on the Charlotte County landfill, generates and sells power to Orlando Utilities Commission through a long-term power purchase agreement.
Duncan Cox, president of Green Gas says the acquisition will help his company 'further expand its mission of building a portfolio of landfill gas-to-energy projects'. Green Gas International, the owner of Green Gas Americas, currently generates 120MW of electricity derived from renewable sources.
