The Jacksonville Business Journal is reporting (you need a subscription to read the whole article) that JEA (the energy company for Jacksonville, Florida) is planning to buy electricity for 40,000 homes from ADAGE‘s Hamilton County biopower plant. The plant, operated by ADAGE, a JV between Duke Energy and AREVA, converts woody biomass – debris from forest operations that would otherwise go to waste – into usable, renewable energy.
We’re glad that JEA’s going to be working with us. Customer demand for clean, renewable energy has a big role to play in the debates going on right now over climate change and renewable energy. If the people are asking for more of their energy to be generated by green energy sources like nuclear power, biomass, wind, and solar, it’s easier to get to a cleaner, CO2-free energy future.
