Wood-Burning Plants Are the Next Big Thing in Electricity Generation

Portsmouth, New Hampshire [Concord Monitor] Wood chips are already starting to pile up in a storage building at Schiller Station in Portsmouth while construction workers put the finishing touches on a boiler that will burn the chips to generate electricity. The wood-burning power project, which is owned by Public Service Co. of New Hampshire, is a model of the type of plant North Country lawmakers would like to see in Berlin [NH] to help offset the closing of the pulp mill. The $75 million Seacoast project is expected to begin generating electricity in August. Lawmakers ruled this week that PSNH can go ahead with plans for a similar wood-burning power plant in the North Country.
