Environmental consciousness and energy efficiency are becoming more important to both individual consumers and businesses. In 2002, Wabash Valley Power began investing in landfill gas generation and now, with 15 plants and 53 MW of baseload capacity, leads the Midwest in landfill gas ownership.

Wabash Valley Power in 2017 created Co-op Solar, a community solar program so successful that in mid-2018 the WVPA board voted to expand up to 7 MW. WVPA recently contracted with a third-party to purchase the output of a 199 MW solar facility beginning in 2023. Wabash Valley Power’s total portfolio also currently consists of 119 MW of wind energy, and will grow to 219 MW by 2020*.

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

**Wabash Valley Power purchases the energy from the County Line landfill through a purchased power agreement.
