The Kent County Waste to Energy facility is critical to Kent County’s integrated solid waste system: • it generates electricity for 11,000 homes, about the number of residences in the City of Walker • it’s a baseload energy source diversifying Michigan’s renewable energy portfolio • we’ve recovered over 124,000 tons of scrap steel that would have otherwise not been recycled • we preserved 10 years of South Kent Landfill airspace, extending the life of the landfill • we provide good jobs for 50 employees • it generated 100,943,000 KWh of electricity in 2016.
