General Motors Co. said Wednesday it will invest $24 million to provide a powerhouse and electrical-generation equipment at two assembly plants to allow for converting landfill gas into electricity.

The Detroit automaker says it will be the first North American automaker to generate its own electricity using landfill gas, a source of renewable energy. The investment is going into GM’s Orion Assembly Plant in Orion Township and its Fort Wayne Assembly Plant in Roanoke, Ind. About $13 million will be spent at Orion.
