Kansas City Power & Light, St. Joseph power plant will turn methane into energy

Kansas City Power & Light is teaming up with the city of St. Joseph to create a power plant that converts methane leaking from the city’s landfill into energy.

The utility said Tuesday that the plant will gather gas created from decomposing garbage at the 90-acre landfill and turn it into enough energy to power almost 1,000 homes a year.
