On Monday Cheyenne's City Council approved a development agreement for Microsoft's Data Plant Demonstration Project.
The plant would test sewage as a power source using a fuel cell. It would be built next to the Dry Creek Water Reclamation Facility.
"This is a great opportunity for Cheyenne and for Wyoming" says Anja Bendel, Cheyenne LEADS. "It's really an opportunity to partner with Microsoft, Fuel Cell Energy, the university..."
Mayor Rick Kaysen is a big supporter of the plant. "I'm looking forward to the results" he says.
Bendel is looking forward to the results too. "If we can make it work on a small scale, this might be something Microsoft can use on a large scale on an actual center" she says.
If the demonstration plant goes through, Microsoft hopes to break ground in March.
The experiment would run 18 months.
