Project Description

NCRP will retrofit an existing dormant coal-fired power plant to a renewable energy power plant utilizing biomass, in particular, poultry litter and wood waste: NC Renewable Power (NCRP) retrofit a dormant coal-fired power plant to a 25MW renewable energy power plant utilizing locally sourced poultry litter and wood waste. The NCRP plant is located in rural Robeson County, one of NC’s poorest areas and a region dominated by large scale poultry production. Water runoff from poultry litter pollutes local waterways. NCRP’s use of poultry litter helps local farmers and removes a significant amount of poultry litter from the community. NCRP is only the second utility scale power plant in the US utilizing a high percentage of poultry litter.
