We generated first power at our renewable energy plant in Spring 2017, the plant exports 44 Megawatts (MW) of green electricity which is enough to supply 82,000 homes and save over 300,000 tons of polluting CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is, but is similar to the amount of carbon sequestered by over 25,000 acres of forest and creates a saving equal to using nearly 3.5 million gallons of petrol.

How much biomass will you need to burn every year for the power plant to run at full capacity?

We will burn just over 250 kilotons every year at full capacity.We have already contracted with a number of local suppliers and will work with further potential suppliers as our power plant begins to take shape, working with producers locally and regionally whenever we can.
