PONTOTOC — Methane gas from a local landfill will be generating electricity for the Tennessee Valley a year from now, according to a plan launched by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Pontotoc Electric Power Association and the Three Rivers Solid Waste Management Authority.

Under the pilot program, landfill gas from the Three Rivers Regional Landfill in Pontotoc will be used as a fuel source to produce up to one megawatt of electricity, that will then by transferred through PEPA to the electric power grid for consumption.

The pilot is known as Generation Partners and is set to be operational by October 2011.
