A Green Power station opened recently in Scotland, using biomass (trees) to generate electricity.

“The power plant will produce enough green energy, from the surrounding forests, to supply up to 70,000 homes – more than 17 times the population of Lockerbie.”

The wood used at the plant comes from waste from wood industry plants nearby, meaning no new trees would be destroyed for this purpose.

Also,

“This site is creating 50 jobs at Steven’s Croft and is supporting 250 more and it is great news that the timber is being sourced locally.”

Another great leap in technology and innovation. What an inspiring program. Not only are they using sustainable and renewable resources, but building green-collar jobs and strengthening their communities!
