ReEnergy Lyonsdale, located on a 46-acre site adjacent to the Southern Adirondacks in Lyons Falls, NY, uses biomass as its primary fuel to produce approximately 162,000 net MWh of electricity each year — enough to supply about 21,000 homes. At ReEnergy Lyonsdale, steam is produced to generate electricity, which is sold directly to customers such as utilities and energy services companies.
The 22 MW facility, which opened in 1992, was acquired by ReEnergy in March 2011. ReEnergy has invested significantly in the facility to improve its efficiency and performance. ReEnergy Lyonsdale is an important corporate citizen in the North Country, 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 Lyonsdale, 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 baseload energy.
ReEnergy Lyonsdale recently donated wood chips as part of a community effort to enhance a half-mile fitness trail.
