Clean Energy — A Sustainable Way To Power The World

Renewable energy has emerged as one of the most important topics of our changing world. Rapid changes in social, technological and market factors have all converged to create new energy sources that will change the way the world is powered.

Colorado’s First Utility-Scale Biomass Power Project is underway in Gypsum, CO.

  • 11.5 MW woody biomass Combined Heat & Power
  • Electricity sales are being purchased by Holy Cross Energy, servicing Parachute to Vail, Glenwood Springs to Aspen
  • The plant will burn clean woody biomass: Forest thinnings, hazardous fuel reductions and clean green biomass waste
  • Construction started Dec 2011 and will be completed Dec 2013

Biomass is a Unique Forest Health Tool.  The plant will support priority forest health and wildland fire fuels reduction treatments. Dead trees are used to produce clean, green energy.
