The use of prepared solid waste as a supplementary fuel is being investigated by communities all over the country as a method for recovering energy from commercial and residential solid wastes. This document presents survey results that are intended to help local decision-makers in assessing the availability of electric utility boilers with potential for using prepared solid waste as supplementary fuel. For the major coal-burning States and the major urban centers, details are given for investor-owned and municipally-owned plants on the following items: (1) boiler characteristics; (2) energy requirements for electricity generation; (3) potential energy available from combustion of solid waste derived from specified areas around each plant; (4) typical transportation distances from the centers of waste generation to the plants, and (5) the potential waste-burning capacity per day of each boiler if solid waste replaced 10 percent of its fossil fuel.
