Excellent question. Remember that we mentioned that in 2011 trash incineration was upgraded and is now considered Tier 1 renewable energy? And remember that the company donated a lot of money to help make this happen in Maryland? Well they did all that work for a reason. Public institutions need to buy energy and they would prefer to support renewable sources if possible. Well, trash incineration can now be presented as renewable so when groups like the schools buy it - it can also be said that they are supporting something green. Having said all that - very few people were aware that the schools or other entities are buying energy from the incinerator.
