POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (CBS Tampa) â€” Believe in the power of poop. Itâ€™s an initiative being pushed by one South Florida energycompany, which is now on the edge of being approved in Fort Lauderdale to help generate home electricity.
Power Green Energy, a Pompano Beach start-up hoping to turn sludge from waste-water treatment plants into renewable electricity for the state, is awaiting word today from the Fort Lauderdale City Commission to approve a rezoning request that would implement the system by the middle of next year.Â Â The South Florida Sun-SentinelÂ reports that the company has received the City Commissionâ€™s tentative approval to initiate operations that would feed into Florida Power & Light Co.â€™s power-lines by mid-2012.
â€œTo be able offset energy use for waste-water facilities with renewable energy or renewable gas from the very waste going into the facility in the first place is the optimum solution,â€ Patrick Serfass, executive director for the American Biogas Council in Washington, told CBS Tampa.
The proposed initiative is another step toward creating additional energy sources for the state, its tentative goal projected at 4 megawatts of electricity, or about 1,000-plus homes powered by the waste-to-energy plan. Currently, similar examples are also taking place in North Carolina and Wisconsin.
