Ameresco Exemplifies Commitment To Landfill Gas Utilization

The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), has announced that Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE:AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, was awarded the SWANA Silver Excellence Award in Landfill Gas Utilization. Jim Bier, senior project developer, accepted the award on behalf of Ameresco. The award was presented at SWANA’s annual national conference, WASTECON, in Washington, D.C. yesterday.

According to SWANA, the Excellence Award was awarded to Ameresco for the success of its Santa Clara, California All Purpose Landfill Gas to Energy Facility (LFGTE). After the previous LFGTE developer abandoned its plant, the City of Santa Clara was left with very few options to utilize the renewable energy resource at its All Purpose Landfill (Landfill). With a partnership beginning in 2006, Ameresco designed, built, and now owns and operates the new LFGTE plant that provides clean electricity to Silicon Valley Power customers through an innovative clean gas turbine technology. The Santa Clara plant utilizes an otherwise wasted energy resource with a net positive air impact. Since no water is used, this project leaves almost no mark on the environment.

Ameresco, Inc. is a leading independent provider of comprehensive energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions for facilities throughout North America, delivering long-term value through innovative systems, strategies and technologies. Ameresco’s solutions range from upgrades to facility’s energy infrastructure to the development, construction and operation of renewable energy plants combined with tailored financial solutions. It works with customers on both sides of the meter to reduce operating expenses, upgrade and maintain facilities, stabilize energy costs, improve occupancy comfort levels, increase energy reliability and enhance the environment. In addition to its work with Santa Clara, Ameresco has a solid track record of successful biogas projects including Chiquita Canyon Landfill in California, San Antonio Water Systems in Texas and Dallas Water Utilities in Texas.
