CHP Plant Initiatives

Generating Renewable Electricity

A proposed Multi Fuel Combined Heat and Power (CHP) facility is under consideration as this allows the opportunity to provide another form of renewable electricity generation on site. This facility converts the energy left in residual material such as wood and other fuel sources, into electricity using a conventional steam cycle.
