- In 1983, the MRWMD began using landfill gas as fuel for two Waukesha engine generators to generate 1.2 MW of electrical energy for PG&E. In 1994, a third generator was installed, increasing the capacity to 2.1 MW. The Monterey Peninsula Landfill was the first in the U.S. to use Austrian-made Jenbacher engines, which were installed in 1996 and 1997. Currently, the plant generates 2.8 MW, which is enough to provide all on-site power needs and also sell the surplus to PG&E.
