Company Spotlight:  Craven Wood Energy

Craven County Wood Energy is located at the Craven County Industrial Park and they are a renewable facility that utilizes biomass waste to produce electricity. Basically, they burn wood chips to produce steam that creates electricity. What an operation!
 
The power produced supports the health of the forests, mitigates greenhouse gases, conserves landfill space and supports the electricity grid in eastern North Carolina. This facility can produce enough electricity to power approximately 50,000 homes.
 
We are very fortunate to have this renewable power plant, which produces renewable electricity 24 hours a day, complimenting other renewable intermittent energy resources, such as solar and wind, which do not generate electricity when the sun does not shine or the wind does not blow.
 
Commercial operations began in 1990. Craven County Wood Energy is owned and operated by CMS Energy.
