Environmental consciousness and energy efficiency are becoming more important to both individual consumers and businesses. In 2002, Wabash Valley began investing in landfill gas generation and now, with 15 plants and 47 MW of baseload capacity, leads the Midwest in landfill gas ownership. In addition, Wabash Valley purchases the output from wind farms and biogas generators. Rather than incorporating these renewables into our own portfolio, we sell the environmental attributes, facilitating others’ ability to achieve their environmental goals. While this doesn’t allow us to claim this generation as renewable in our own portfolio, it is one more way we are supporting the growth of renewables in the marketplace.*

*WVPA supports renewable energy by owning landfill gas generation and purchasing the output of wind farms and biogas generators. Wabash Valley Power sells, separately, the environmental attributes associated with this generation to its members and third parties, and therefore does not claim the generation as renewable within our own supply portfolio.
