Citing the failure of Eversource to come to terms on a new power-purchase agreement with six of New Hampshire’s biomass energy producers, four producers are suspending fuel purchases and operation.
Douglas York, manager of the DG Whitefield biomass plant in Whitefield, said his facility would cease operations as of today, adding that a sister plant in Springfield would do so on April 13.
Meanwhile, Hunter Carbee, the wood-energy representative for the NH Timber Harvesting Council, said both the Pinetree-Bethlehem and Pinetree-Tamworth plants stopped buying biomass on March 29.
