Our renewable energy plant opened on 21st January 2016, it generates 40MW of green electricity which is enough to supply 75,000 homes and save over 250,000 tons of CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is but is similar to the amount of carbon sequestered by over 700,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years and the saving is equal to nearly 70 million miles driven by an average car.

Behind the project

Our Renewable Energy Power Plant is one of 15-20 similar sized biomass plants that are operating or under construction in the UK at the moment, all of which generate clean, green energy which is great for the environment.

Community benefits

We are new in your area and we know that means we need to work hard to make sure our project brings as many benefits as possible to your community. Being good neighbours remains our top priority and we hope that we can continue to become a positive part of your community, working together now and into the future.

FAQs

Does burning biomass emit more harmful greenhouse gases than coal?

No. We are anticipating our biomass power plant will save in the region of 250,000 tons of polluting CO2 every year. The difference between using biomass and coal or other fossil fuels is simply that the carbon released through burning biomass has only very recently been absorbed from the environment so is part of the existing carbon cycle, the carbon from fossil fuels was absorbed millions of years ago so when released adds to the carbon in the atmosphere.
