Should work. There are landfills here in Florida that make enough methane to generate commercial amounts of electricity. Now they're covering those same landfills with PV, for a twofer!
Solar is like the wind. It may be free, but putting it to work isn't!

GH,  You might take a look at this URL 

I found masses of info re composting and 'digesting' for methane by Googling 'Articles about methane gas production for home use.'  There is world-wide interest in composting/digesting both for field and garden fertilizer and methane gas production.  One author states that home methane production units are manufactured and sold in Germany and Switzerland and are in wide use.  Some farmers produce enough methane from manure, night soil, and compost to provide gas for heating, cooking, lighting, and even fueling internal combustion engines.  Author went on to state that any appliance that runs on propane can be easily converted to run on methane.  

An interesting topic.  Thanks for posting.    GOM
