Existing Power Plant/Manufacturing and Agricultural-Marginal/Industrial
NOTE: Lead Agency changed from Energy Commission to Amador County with NOP 03/17/2010
The proposed project includes the repowering and conversion of an existing 18.5 megawatt electric generation facility to a renewable wood waste biomass energy facility. The facility is currently permitted to use lignite (a relatively low-grade coal), chipped automotive tires, oil absorbents, and other alternative materials as fuel sources. With implementation of the proposed project, the use of these fuel sources would no longer be permitted at the facility. The proposed fuel supply for the project is solely renewable woody biomass derived from a variety of sources including clean urban wood waste, agricultural byproducts from orchard operations, and forest sourced material (residuals, such as slash piles from forest thinning for wildfire fuel reduction).
