Hick, deputy assistant secretary of the Navy for energy, makes his opening remarks during the "Flip the Switch" ceremony aboard Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar, San Diego, Calif., on June 14, 2012. The event was held to signify the use of methane gas from the Miramar Landfill to produce roughly 50 percent of the power used daily on MCAS Miramar. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Christopher A.

  • A generator turns methane-powered fan-blade rotations into energy at the Miramar Landfill, San Diego Calif., June 3. The landfill is used to collect methane gas, which is converted into renewable energy for the air station.
  • Approximately four miles of 12-kilovolt line runs above and below ground for the power-purchase project between the Miramar Landfill and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar that is set to be complete in May. This agreement will provide the air station with three megawatt-hours of energy to the base from two 1900-kilowatt methane-powered generators at the landfill. As methane gas builds up among the landfill’s waste, it is directed to the generators before being converted to useable energy and sent to the base’s transformers.
