– October 7, 2016, Sierra Star
North Fork Community Power (NFCP) and Yosemite/Sequoia RC&D Council will host a groundbreaking ceremony for the NFCP Bioenergy Facility, Nov. 3, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., at the Old Mill Site (34000 Koso Nobe Road).
The event will kick-off with statements from government leaders and key project partners followed by a brief tour of the project location. Immediately following will be light refreshments as well as an opportunity for questions and answers with the project team.
North Fork Community Power, a public private partnership between North Fork Community Development Council and Phoenix Energy, has been working for the last two years on financing to complete the construction of the small-scale forest bioenergy facility at a retired sawmill site in North Fork, California. The power plant will provide economic uses for forest biomass generated as a byproduct of sustainable forest management operations and hazardous fuels treatment activities in the greater North Fork area.
