Gainesville signs supply contract

By Staff | October 26, 2010

The Gainesville, Fla., Renewable Energy Center has signed a long-term biomass supply contract with local wood waste recycler Wood Resource Recovery, fulfilling almost half of the fuel supply needs for the 100-megawatt power plant.


Developer American Renewables said the biomass feedstock will be clean urban wood waste including tree trimmings, right-of-way clearing and debris from land contractors and tree surgeons. Electricity produced at the GREC will be sold to Gainesville Regional Utilities under a 30-year power purchase agreement and used to power 700,000 homes, according to American Renewables. 


The GREC will also use local logging residues and thinning material as feedstock.
