INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A ribbon-cutting Tuesday officially opened on the state’s largest renewable natural gas facility.
Mayor Joe Hogsett helped open the plant at the South Side Landfill on Kentucky Avenue. The plant will convert landfill methane gas into renewable natural gas.
Hogsett said, “As green energy costs continue to fall, those who innovate and find cleaner ways to harness energy will be the one who lead us into the future both environmentally and economically. That’s why the city of Indianapolis was pleased and proud to provide financial incentive for this $25 million investment partnership.”
Indianapolis-based Kinetrex Energy says the $25 million Indy High BTU plant could produce about 8 million gallons of renewable natural gas annually.
