The power plant construction commenced in January 2006 and was completed in October of the same year. Official commercial operations of the power plant began in December 2006. Since then, the power plant has run continuously to the present time. The environment and surrounding areas around the landfill have improved significantly in that the vegetation has flourished and there are no more odour issues or gas migration. This project is expected to continue for at least 10 to 15 years. This project illustrates how public and private entities can collaborate to address environmental issues.
