Aug 8th, 2013 | By | Category: Business

NRG Energy Inc. has announced its plan to construct a bioenergy park next to its biomass facility in Montville, Conn.

The Montville Renewable Energy Park will consist of two fuel cell generators, a solar energy farm and a biomass power plant. The power plant, which is currently fueled by natural gas and oil, is to be reconfigured to fire 400,000 tons of local wood chips annually to generate 42 megawatts (MW) of energy. Currently, the biomass plant has secured all major permits, and construction is scheduled to begin by the end of the year, if an offtake contract is secured.
