Under the new plan, methane would be piped into a generator and converted into electricity.</p><p>“This methane gas to electricity process is something we need to do more of in this country," Beshear said. "And to take refuge in a landfill, and take the methane gas off of that and turn it into electricity and put it on the grid so that people can use it--it saves us all money, it saves the environment.”</p><p>Glasgow mayor Rhonda Trautman says the city is acting now to avoid problems later.
