Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

Resources for Funding Landfill Gas Energy Projects

Various resources are available to provide financing or incentives for landfill gas (LFG) energy projects, including tax credits and exemptions, production incentives, loans, and grants. On this page, LMOP provides information about the federal incentives most commonly used in LFG energy project development, with links to an external database that provides detailed information about numerous incentives.

EPA does not intend for this website to provide an exhaustive list of available funding resources for LFG energy projects. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE), Exit funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and managed by LMOP State Partner NC Clean Energy Technology Center, is a comprehensive source of information on state, local, utility and select federal incentives that promote renewable energy resources, including LFG. The DSIRE frequently asked questions page Exit provides helpful tips on using the database.
