PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH) is celebrating the seventh anniversary of the Northern Wood Power biomass unit at Schiller Station.
Northern Wood Power was completed and became operational in December, 2006, permanently replacing a 50-megawatt coal-burning boiler with an environmentally-friendly system that uses wood chips and other clean, low-grade wood materials for fuel. It has earned state, regional, national, and international awards for its innovation and positive environmental changes.
“Northern Wood has provided customers with clean energy and tremendous value during its first seven years of commercial operation,” said Bill Smagula, PSNH Vice President - Generation. “Its success is a tribute to all the great effort put forth by many PSNH employees and the work of our local foresters.”
