Miscellaneous/Alternate Energy Source 01
Benson gets OK for turkey-manure power plant.
Aside from being the most colorful title this staff has read this year, the story highlights the diverse sources of fuel possible. This plant is being planned because Xcel Energy, the operator, is required by Minnesota to produce 125 MW of electricity from biomass energy. The turkey powered plant will produce 50 MW. To date, there is no indication of what the next fowl source would be.(12-01 BD69-13)
