Arizona Utility Looking At Biomass Power Generation

After boosting its solar power generation and adding wind-energy projects in recent years, Tucson Electric Power Co. is looking at biomass generation from burning wood or other organic matter. TEP said Friday that it is seeking information about forest biomass generation systems that could generate power for customers while improving the health of Arizona forests. […]

Arizona Regulators Explore Ramping Up Use Of Forest Biomass For Power

Should utility customers pay a surcharge for bioenergy that helps utilize trees thinned from Arizona’s overstocked forests? That was one possibility discussed last week at a first-ever workshop on forest bioenergy hosted by the Arizona Corporation Commission. Representatives from some of the state’s largest utilities, businesses, nonprofits, the Forest Service, and state and local governments […]

Burning Question: Is Woody Biomass The 21st Century Fuel?

For hundreds of millennia, humans have depended on wood as a basic but reliable source of fuel. Today efforts to grow that dependence in the face of an evolving energy landscape are widespread. But they’re also contentious. The debate over biomass, an umbrella term that encompasses a range of organic materials used for energy, rests […]

Arizona Utility To Study Inclusion Of Biomass In Its Portfolio

Arizona Public Service on Tuesday was ordered by the Arizona Corporation Commission to research forest bioenergy as part of its portfolio during a hearing in which the commission approved its rate increase. The increase will allow APS to collect an additional $95 million from its customers, an average increase of approximately $6 per month, according […]

Biomass Partnerships Provide Benefits To Arizona County

Residents of Navajo County get energy they can depend on, increased livestock forage and better hunting opportunities thanks to a partnership project that converts unwanted invasive plants into fuel for Arizona families. The Arizona Conservation Partnership Program organizes the removal of patches of pine and juniper on federal, state, county and private lands. The project […]

Arizona Awarding Biomass Enterprise Grants

Forests and woodlands across the state of Arizona are in need of market development opportunities to facilitate on‐the‐ground restoration activities. The Arizona Department of Forestry & Fire Management and the USDA Forest Service are committed to advancing the installation of commercially viable wood energy systems in the public and private applications that use woody biomass […]

Arizona Coal Burning Plant Experiments With Woody Biomass

A group of hardhat-clad utility officials and journalists braced themselves against a bitter December breeze on Friday as they watched a metal chute spill a stream of wood chips onto a conveyor of jet black coal. Churning along at a rate of 1,000 tons per hour, the coal was headed up to the giant silos […]

Arizona’s Salt River Project To Test Burning Forest Debris At Coal Plant

Salt River Project is exploring the feasibility of using forest debris as a supplemental fuel at its Coronado Generating Station (CGS) in St. Johns, Ariz., to improve the health of Arizona’s forests and watersheds. CGS workers are scheduled to test burn more than 2,600 tons – or about 250 acres – of forest debris biomass […]

Arizona Power Plant To Run On Forest Thinnings

A power plant in Northern Arizona that will run on trees thinned from the forest to prevent fires has received an air-quality permit from the state, officials said Monday. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality issued the permit to Concord Blue Eagar, an affiliate of a larger company called Concord Blue Energy. The company must […]

NWTF Awarded Biomass Enterprise Grant By Arizona State Forestry

In conjunction with National Bioenergy Day, Arizona State Forestry is happy to announce that the National Wild Turkey Federation has been awarded a Biomass Enterprise Grant. The grant will be used to produce an engineering feasibility analysis to add heat recovery capability to a wood biochar pryrolosis production unit in Safford, Arizona. The woody biomass […]
