ReEnergy Livermore Falls
ReEnergy Livermore Falls, located near Lewiston in Livermore Falls, ME (Androscoggin County), uses biomass to produce approximately 284,000 net megawatt-hours of electricity each year — enough to supply about 37,000 homes. 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 megawatt 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 provides electricity from sustainably harvested forest residue material and wood recovered from construction and demolition material. This forest material otherwise would have been landfilled or left to decompose on forest floors or in urban lots, resulting in the production of methane, a greenhouse gas. Biomass power facilities enhance forest health, mitigate climate change, support jobs in the forest products industry, contribute to fuel diversity, and represent reasonably priced forms of renewable baseload energy.
ReEnergy Livermore Falls has achieved certification to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) Standard, which verifies that the facility’s biomass procurement program promotes land stewardship and responsible forestry practices.
