Springfield and City Utilities completed the Noble Hill Landfill Gas-to-Energy project in May 2006. The project recovers methane gas from the landfill to produce enough energy to power 2,600 homes.

  The city and City Utilities also plan to replace all incandescent traffic signal lights with LED lamps by the end of 2008. This project is expected to save $88,500 annually.
