Florida’s Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved Progress Energy Florida’s (PEF) purchase of power from a proposed U.S. EcoGen Polk, LLC (EcoGen) biomass electric generating facility in Fort Meade, Fla. EcoGen plans to sell 60 MW of capacity and associated energy to PEF for approximately 29 years beginning January 1, 2014.

The company plans initially to use waste wood for fuel and in the future operate dedicated eucalyptus plantations. The company estimates it will require 400,000 to 500,000 tons of woody material per year.

EcoGen intends to begin construction in the first quarter of next year.
