In the fall of 2003, EKPC opened three power plants that produce electric power from landfill gas. Each landfill gas-to-electric plant converts methane that is produced from decaying trash into electricity. The projects have been applauded for being both environmentally responsible and cost efficient. 

The first three facilities are located outside of Grayson, London and Walton, Kentucky.  A fourth facility, located at the Pearl Hollow landfill in Hardin County, came online in January 2006, our fifth facility in Pendleton County came online in January 2007 and the Glasgow Regional landfill plant came online in 2015. Currently, the sixlandfill gas facilities generate enough electricity to power about 9,000 Kentucky homes.
