Glasgow aims to turn methane into electricity

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - A south-central Kentucky city is hoping to capture methane gas from a regional landfill and turn it into electricity.

The Daily News in Bowling Green reports officials in Glasgow have partnered with Farmers Rural Electric Cooperative in seeking a $1 million loan to help pay for the project.

Farmers CEO Bill Prather says it could take up to 90 days to hear whether the loan has been approved.

Glasgow Mayor Rhonda Trautman says officials are trying to be "proactive" with the initiative.

The landfill serves 16 counties in the region.
