Landfill gas generated by the waste deposited at the landfill is transported to gas engines via a gas pipeline network equipped with catchpots and gas wells, and converted to electrical power there. A total of 139.798 thousand. m3 of landfill gas was extracted from the landfill body between December 2004 and Juni 2019. All of the extracted gas was processed at the Small Thermal Power Plant.

A small electrical power plant that produces electric energy from landfill gas at the landfill Jakuševec is one of its kind in the Republic of Croatia. In 2014.  The plant produced a total of 12.003.668 kWh of electric energy. In 2015. a third generator was installedand the total of 17.524.144 kWh of electric energy has been produced, which is enough to settle the yearly energy demand of roughly 5.000 house holds. In 2018.
