Aria Energy begins commercial operations at second landfill gas-to-energy facility

March 23, 2015 |

In Florida, Aria Energy has announced the commencement of its commercial operations at its 4.8MW landfill gas-to-energy facility at the Sarasota County’s Central County Solid Waste Disposal Complex located in Nokomis, Florida. The amount of renewable energy produced at the facility is the equivalent of the electricity needed to supply over 2,800 homes, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates.

The Sarasota County Project is the second Aria Energy owned and operated facility with JEA purchasing the electricity through a power purchase agreement. In 2008, Aria Energy performed design, engineering, equipment procurement and installation, permitting, construction and commissioning of the power generation facility located at the City of Jacksonville’s Trail Ridge Landfill. Aria Energy owns and operates the facility and sells its electricity to JEA under a long-term agreement. Aria Energy is the largest provider of landfill gas-to-energy in the state of Florida with a total of 32 MW of installed capacity.
