ReEnergy Livermore Falls
ReEnergy Livermore Falls, located near Lewiston in Livermore Falls, ME, (Androscoggin County), uses biomass as its primary fuel to produce approximately 250,000 MWh of electricity each year — enough to supply nearly 32,000 homes. The facility is also permitted to use other fuels, including wood recovered from construction and demolition material. At ReEnergy Livermore Falls, the steam that is produced is used to generate electricity which is sold directly to customers such as utilities, energy services companies or municipal co-ops.
The 39 MW facility, which opened in 1992, was acquired by ReEnergy in December 2011. ReEnergy Livermore Falls is an important corporate citizen in Androscoggin County, as it provides direct jobs at the facility, indirect jobs associated with the use of the forest residue fuel supply, and additional jobs tied to local goods and services related to the facility.
ReEnergy Livermore Falls, like the other biomass-to-energy generation facilities in Maine and New York owned by ReEnergy, provides sustainable electricity from responsibly harvested green forest residue biomass, and unadulterated wood. This material otherwise would have been left to decompose on forest floors or in urban lots and in either case resulting in the production of harmful methane gases. In addition to the environmental benefits associated with biomass-to-energy, these facilities are very reasonably priced forms of renewable base-load energy.
