The Power of Sewage

st1nky187 It's being done already (305 comments)

Last summer I went on a field trip to a sewage treatment plant. The power to run the plant comes solely from the methane they harvest. I asked about whether they sent any of the power back out to the grid and the guide said that they didn't generate nearly enough to do that. So, unless suburban New Yorkers have a lower methane output than everyone else I'm pretty skeptical that this would be really feasible.
