How Lebanon Plans to Power City Buildings With a Capstone Microturbine

March 11, 2022

The Lebanon Solid Waste Facility serves nearly two dozen communities in New Hampshire and Vermont. Soon, the trash residents drop off there will be used to power the city. As the trash decomposes, it produces landfill gas. That gas is currently burned off. But, instead of burning it in the future, a new $5 million facility will use the gas to produce electricity using a Capstone microturbine. The conversion process will generate about 1,000 kilowatts of electricity. The renewable energy will be redistributed to the electrical grid in order to power city facilities. The project is also expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 3,500 tons per year.
