Forestry, Energy and the Environment Workshop

Our Forestry, Energy and the Environment workshop will focus on the use of biomass for electricity generation in RCEA’s energy mix. Friday, October 18, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the Humboldt bay Aquatic Center. Biomass power derived from mill residuals and other wood waste has been a significant source of locally generated electricity in Humboldt County since the 1980s and has been an element of RCEA’s community choice energy program’s renewable energy power mix since 2017. At this workshop, a diverse panel of experts, facilitated by Michael Furniss, will share information, discuss, and answer questions about the role of biomass power in meeting our local electricity needs as well as its role in managing local forest lands and our local economy’s forest products sector. Everyone is welcome, refreshments will be provided. The event will be recorded. Get updates and details on our website, www.RedwoodEnergy.org and by calling (707) 269-1700
