ReEnergy Stratton, located in Stratton, ME, uses biomass as its primary fuel to produce approximately 350,000 MWh of electricity each year — enough to supply 45,000 homes. At ReEnergy Stratton, some of the electricity that is produced is sold to a local business while the balance is sold directly to other customers such as utilities, energy services companies, and municipal co-ops.
The 48 MW facility, which opened in 1989, was acquired by ReEnergy in December 2011. ReEnergy Stratton is an important corporate citizen in Franklin 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 Stratton, 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.
