The Mohegan Tribe has created a company to export wood pellets as fuel to plants that produce electricity in the nation and worldwide.
Mohegan Renewable Energy recently acquired a 100,000-ton per year manufacturing plant in Crossville, Alabama, which along with a Jasper, Tennessee plant, will ship more than 180,000 tons of wood pellets per year to major utilities. More than 50 workers will be added in the coming months.
“Mohegan Renewable Energy is poised to grow the renewable energy business and further penetrate the global markets,” said Mark Boivin, president and CEO of Mohegan Renewable Energy. “We recognize the importance of looking beyond wood pellets and have assembled a knowledgeable and experienced team that understands how to build resilient supply chains for the markets both in Europe and Asia.”
