Brea Power Landfill-Gas-To-Energy

Brea Landfill
Nestled in the hills above Orange County, the Brea Power landfill-gas-to-energy project provides Anaheim with 28 MW of local renewable energy to power about 8% of Anaheim’s energy needs.  At the Brea Power facility, landfill gas is collected from decomposing trash, and used to generate electricity for over 29,000 Anaheim homes.  Because the Brea Power facility is considered an emissions free resource, it also helps Anaheim offset its fossil fuel use, and meet our greenhouse gas reduction goals.
