Plainville to House New Biomass Power Plant

A 37.5-megawatt biomass power plant to be constructed in Plainville was one of seven renewable energy projects approved by the state Department of Public Utility Control. Among these include three fuel cell projects, three biomass projects, and a methane gas project at a Norwalk landfill. The wood burning fuel plant from Plainfield Renewable Energy LLC is projected to add $11.3 million in local tax revenue while the other project will cost ratepayers approximately $101 million over the next 20 years. All in all, when these projects are up and running, almost 110-megawatts of additional energy will enter the current energy grid. Although there has been speculation on the adverse effects the plant could have on local air quality and water quantity, strict air emission requirements are in place and are intended to be met.

Even with the most advanced geophysical instruments today, there's no practical way of stopping a 37.5-megawatt biomass power plant in case of a critical malfunction. This is one major flaw that must be taken into account before the project is approved.

They rather used the wood for vanities furniture not for wood burning fuel plant from Plainfield Renewable Energy LLC. For sure this new plant will emit a lot of pollution in the air, water and soil. The community will have only to suffer from this decision.
