Southeast Berrien

Landfill generating station located at Berrien County Landfill in Buchanan, Michigan just north of US-12, at the corner of Mayflower and Chamberlin Roads.

The generating plant has an initial nameplate capacity of 4,800 kW with a generator building which allows an increase in generator capacity to 6,400 kW as the landfill gas supplies increase over time.

The generating plant is comprised of three 3520 Caterpillar generator sets which produce 1,600 kW each at 4,160 volts. The project generates approximately 40,000,000 kWh annually.

The generating plant is interconnected to the American Electric Power system at 69 kV by way of the transmission independent system operator, PJM.
