Today’s landfills are not the “dumps” of the past.
Instead, they implement state-of-the-art equipment and components to contain trash, protect the environment and create renewable energy. Landfills serve an important purpose in their communities as safe repositories for trash, but they can also provide a valuable source of power.
Granger is a leader in the development of renewable energy projects—and has been since 1985 when we became the first to make practical use of landfill gas in Michigan.
Featured Energy Project
Wood Road Generating Station
Wood Road Generating Station produces electricity from landfill gas 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Granger and electric customer, Lansing Board of Water & Light (BWL), work together to bring renewable energy to mid-Michigan communities.
- Electric capacity: 8 megawatts
- Annual energy savings from electricity equate to power for 4,789 homes
