COVENTRY, Vt. (AP) — The Washington Electric Co-op is holding an open house at its landfill gas plant in Coventry.

The co-op's generating plant burns methane produced by the decomposition of trash, supplying about 60 percent of the electricity used by its members. The facility opened in 2005 and expanded it in 2007 and 2009.

An open house will be held on Friday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Coventry landfill so co-op members, area residents and visitors can get a tour and see the plant operating.

Groups planning to attend are encouraged to contact the co-op's General Manager Avram Patt before the event.
