McKay Bay Refuse-To-Energy Facility

McKay Bay Refuse-To-Energy Facility

The McKay Bay Refuse-To-Energy Facility provides a reliable, environmentally friendly method of managing the City of Tampa's 360,000+ tons of municipal solid waste that citizens generate each year.  Energy created in burning this waste is converted into enough electrical power to supply electrical needs for up to 15,000 Tampa homes.  Electrical energy generated at the McKay Bay facility is sold to Tampa Electric Company as a revenue source for Tampa's citizens.
