Arizona’s largest biomass plant now providing electricity to thousands of customers

The 24-megawatt plant about 130 miles northeast of Phoenix in Snowflake is generating electricity with material from forest-thinning efforts in the White Mountains and with unusable, recycled paper fibers from a nearby paper mill.

Officials say the plant will provide a stable source of electricity for White Mountain communities that were dependent on two 69-kilovolt power lines that are often compromised during Arizona’s active wildfire season. From Yahoo Biz
