Sundt - Los Reales

Bio-gas  |  Tucson, AZ

TEP burns methane gas from the Los Reales Landfill southeast of Tucson in place of coal or natural gas to produce electricity. Methane from the landfill is piped 3.5 miles to TEP's H. Wilson Sundt Generating Station to co-fire a boiler that supplies electricity to our customers. Methane gas is a byproduct of decay in landfills, and it could contribute to global warming.
