Increased Landfill Gas Generating Capacity at Chestnut Ridge Sanitary Landfill

Anderson County, Tennessee

On December 20, 2010, TVA completed an environmental assessment (EA) and issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for a proposed power purchase agreement for electricity generated at the Chestnut Ridge Sanitary Landfill.  

TVA currently purchases electricity generated from landfill gas at the Chestnut Ridge landfill.  WM Renewable Energy LLC is planning to construct and operate two additional landfill gas-fueled generators, for a total of six generators with a total capacity of 4.8 megawatts at the facility.  The new generators would be installed in a previously disturbed area adjacent to the existing generators.  The EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the construction of the new generators and associated auxiliary systems and the operation of the enlarged generating facility.
