Athens garbage to power homes, generate money for county

Athens-Clarke County has completed a $3.5 million gas conversion system that will utilize methane gases released by landfill garbage to power homes, reports the Athens Banner-Herald.

The system was installed by C2i Methane, a New York-based green energy firm.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that C2i paid for the system and is its owner and operator. The company will sell the energy to Georgia Energy Cooperative and share some of the revenue with the county, the paper said.
