Houston County, Flint Energies complete landfill gas generation project

Tucker, Ga., January 26, 2011 — Flint Energies recently engineered a new landfill gas generation plant located off Georgia highway 247 in Houston County, Georgia.

As part of the project, Georgia Transmission Corp. constructed a $1.3 million substation that will interconnect the new generation to the transmission grid. The new plant provides Flint members with access to 3.2 MW of renewable power at an affordable price.

In September 2008, Houston County negotiated a final contract for the use of its waste methane gas allowing Flint Energies to purchase gas from the county and buy power generation output from PowerSecure International, Inc., which installed and will own and operate the generation plant facilities.

Preserving and protecting the environment are among GTC’s corporate goals. In late 2010, GTC received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certification for its warehouse in Forsyth — the first LEED certification awarded to a private, new construction building in Middle Georgia.
