The YS1000 is also 40 percent lighter than
the previous model, allowing a smaller
control board and thereby decreasing the
cost of system construction.

DG Energy to Build
According to a Jan. 11 article in The
News-Review, DG Energy LLC of San Diego,
Calif., plans to build a 13 MW power plant
in Lakeview, Ore., that will be fueled by
burning wood waste from a local sawmill
and small trees from surrounding forests.
Expected to be operational by late
2008, the $20 million plant will be built
next to the Collins Pine Co.’s Fremont
sawmill in Lakeview. It will sell electricity
to the grid and steam to the sawmill. The
use of biomass at the plant will help the
local community by providing a way to
pay for thinning local forests to reduce the
danger of wildfire, providing more logs for
wood products and improving the health
of forests plagued by beetle infestation.
The Lakeview plant will be the first
biomass plant built in Oregon since 1992.
Two others are in development, however:
Rough & Ready Lumber near Cave Junction
and Warm Springs Forest Products Industries
on the Confederated Tribes of the Warms
DG Energy owns other biomass plants
in Fairhaven, Calif., and Whitefield, N.H.,
as well as District Cooling Co. in Portland.
CU to Replace Power Plant
The Boulder Daily Camera reported
Jan. 20 that the University of Colorado
(CU) in Boulder plans to build a new plant
to replace its aging cogeneration facility
near the corner of 18th Street and Colorado Avenue. Originally constructed in
1909, the existing plant is inefficient and
too small to keep pace with the university’s growth, according to CU officials. The
new plant would cost $60 million to $75
million and be operational by 2011 at the
earliest. Its proposed location is northeast
of the Coors Events Center.
Early in 2006, high natural gas prices
and aging turbines prompted CU to stop
generating its own electricity. Instead it
began purchasing power from Xcel Energy,
which it would continue to do once the
Stratified chilled water and ice storage.
