Solar-Gas Innovation
 
At the Tessman Road Landfill in San Antonio, Texas, Republic Services combined a first-of-its-kind solar technology with an existing gas-to-energy system to turn the facility into a sustainable energy park. The combined systems generate about 9 megawatts of power — enough to power 5,500 area homes.
 
In 2010, Republic Services also implemented a solar energy cover at Hickory Ridge Landfill near Atlanta. The installation is now the largest landfill solar energy cover in the world. The 7,000-solar panel, 10-acre project was the recipient of a $2 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant and is now generating more than 1 megawatt of electricity per year, enough to power 224 homes.
