City Light and Waste Management: Turning Waste into Electricity

Columbia Ridge Exterior

You may recall in April of 2009 I presented legislation to the Full Council that passed which allowed City Light to enter into a 20 year power purchase agreement with Waste Management Inc. This agreement allows Seattle to receive electrical output and renewable energy credits from the Columbia Ridge Land Fill Gas (LFG) electric generating facility in Oregon. We are operational now, converting landfill gas from our garbage into energy!

City Light is purchasing approximately 5.78 average megawatts of power annually. This is enough to power over 5,000 homes! This is yet another element of renewable energy City Light can add to its portfolio as is required under I-937. By way of background, there are 509 LFG facilities nationwide and two-thirds of those facilities generate energy. Washington State currently has four operational facilities. As Chair of the Energy Committee, I will continue to add renewable energies to our already-clean hydroelectric power. If we generate energy from waste, it is a win-win for everyone.
