Today, most electricity comes from limited generation resources. Renewable resources, such as the sun, wind, and decomposing garbage, provide a regenerating fuel source for electricity. Using renewable resources to produce electricity will help reduce the need to use conventional generators powered by limited generation resources.
Renewable resources produce little or no air pollution or waste. Better yet, some of them actually reduce air pollution and benefit the environment. At full capacity, the 14.2 megawatts reduces methane emissions from the landfills. This is equivalent to planting more than 17,800 acres of trees.
