Converting Waste into Energy for Homes and Business

Some of Solano’s most innovative new technology is in the works right here at Potrero Hills Landfill. From recapturing methane to power thousands of homes, to recycling and composting more than we ever could have imagined, we’re on our way to turning a landfill into a ‘Waste Technology Park.’

A long-term agreement with DTE Biomass Energy will soon allow landfill gas to be recovered and converted into enough renewable electricity to power 7,000 local homes and businesses each year.

We hope you’ll take a moment to learn more from the people who are making it happen.
