The power plant for public usage installed in Monterrey City using landfill gas is a case of success for Mexico and Latin America. This power plant supplies energy for lighting of seven municipalities around Monterrey including itself. It is also used to supply energy to the electric train for public transportation and other governmental buildings. To reach the final users it is utilized the electric grid owned by the state Company of Electricity CFE (Comisión Federal de Electricidad). This paper describes the technology chosen to generate the power and the operational strategies to maximize economical efficiency of this renewable energy system. Some points related with legal conditions to operate the power plant are also described.
