Riverview Energy Systems

Located in Riverview, about 20 miles south of downtown Detroit, the Riverview gas recovery project is a city-owned enterprise that was constructed in 1987 and has been selling power to Detroit Edison since 1988. Power production from the gas brings in more than 40,000 megawatt-hours of electricity per year and reduces annual sulfur dioxide emissions by over 1,200 tons. Riverview's royalties covered the construction costs in its first two years of operation and now add to the city's cash flow.
