Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

MCKINNEY, Texas, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has contracted renewable energy from a landfill electricity-generation project in McKinney, Texas, as part of the company's commitment to sustain the environment.

Raytheon is acquiring the power through Noble Americas Energy Solutions LLC from Montauk Energy's McKinney landfill gas-to-energy facility. The landfill is part of the North Texas Municipal Water District.

"Five Raytheon north Texas sites will benefit from the green power supplied by the project," said Mike Allgeier, vice president, Raytheon Network Centric Systems, and Raytheon north Texas regional site executive. "This reflects our corporate responsibility and is just one example of Raytheon's sustainability efforts to engage with the community to conserve energy and natural resources."

Raytheon will receive Green-e certified renewable energy credits as part of this agreement. The contract also supports the company's 2015 goal to reduce its greenhouse gases by 10 percent from a 2008 baseline.

Methane gas, a natural by-product of landfill decomposition, will power generators to commercially supply electricity. The landfill project broke ground December 2010 and is on track to provide Raytheon north Texas sites with green power by the second half of this year.
