The economic and social challenges associated with landfill disposal are increasing, and the importance of renewable energy is more apparent than ever. As a result, governments and communities are implementing policies that encourage and even mandate Waste-to-Energy (WtE) solutions.
In 2015, the United States generated 262.4 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), 12.8% of which was combusted in WtE facilities (U.S. EPA, U.S. EIA). This produced enough electricity to power around 1.3 million homes.
There is an opportunity to power at least an additional 11 million homes in the U.S. and significantly reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill by expanding the use of WtE facilities.
The volume of MSW is increasing every year. Communities throughout the U.S. are seeking cost effective solutions that divert waste from landfills and increase renewable energy generation. Community Eco Power provides the resources and expertise to help communities successfully implement WtE solutions.
By combining resources, sharing expertise, and working together, communities can accomplish much more than through individual efforts alone. Community Eco Power provides resources to communities to implement successful Waste-to-Energy solutions. We grow and optimize operations of acquired and developed Waste-to-Energy facilities by:
- Becoming an active participant in each community we serve
- Making the owners of acquired facilities part of Community Eco Power’s success
- Introducing top management and access to growth capital
- Cross-pollinating best operating practices to increase efficiencies and profitability
- Requiring honesty, integrity, professional courtesy, and fairness in everything we do
- Being immediately responsive to our customers and our community
Our mission is to do good for planet Earth by making promoting and producing sustainable, renewable energy from waste. Our goal is to preserve the land, conserve water, and reduce pollution. In our pursuit of sustainability, we want to build the preeminent community-centered waste to energy company.
We believe that by working together as a team, we can accomplish much more than through individual efforts. Community Eco Power will develop solutions that strengthen communities environmentally, economically, and socially.
The leadership team at Community Eco Power (CEP) brings deep knowledge of the Waste-to-Energy (WtE) industry as well as years of proven experience in operations, finance and management to our organization.
The leadership team is all of us. Working together, from the plant floor to the corporate office, allows us to leverage the decades of experience we possess in operating WtE plants. It also means that we are connected to the communities we serve through each of our employees.
Ensuring we listen to each other and customers means that we can make a positive impact on the communities in which we operate everyday. Effective communications must be open, honest, informative, and professional. We make commitments with care and live up to them.
