Kudos To Southern Company For Building America's Largest Biomass Power Plant

America's latest biomass generation plant is its largest.  To make matters better still, the plant is operating, where the juice is needed most--Texas where electricity generators barely are keeping up with demand driven by sweltering heat.

Southern Company constructed the 100 megawatt facility that is selling power to Austin Energy under a 20-year power agreement.  The plant runs primarily on wood waste from saw mills.

Hydro, wind, and biomass power plants are the big three of renewable generation but solar is gaining fast on all three.
