Power plants to use trash as fuel
Plans are moving ahead for three power plants in Wyoming that would burn trash to produce electricity.
Guernsey-based American Renewable Energy Associates proposes to build power plants in Cheyenne and Guernsey.
The Guernsey plant would process 150 tons of garbage a day and produce 9 megawatts. The Cheyenne plant would process 200 tons per day and produce 13 megawatts.
Company spokeswoman Heather Foster says the plants are on schedule to open next year.
A third garbage-fueled power plant would be built in Riverton.
