Posted on Nov 14, 2012 by Sustainability
The Forest County Potawatomi Community (FCPC) recently broke ground on its $18.6 million renewable energy facility in the Menomonee Valley. The waste-to-energy project, one of the first of its kind in the Milwaukee-area, will convert waste materials generated by the food and beverage industries to electricity. The electricity produced will be sold to WE Energies as renewable energy. The installation is expected to produce approximately 2.0 megawatts (MW) of electrical power, which is enough electricity to power approximately 1,500 homes.
