Woody Biomass Event

by AVA News Service, May 1, 2016

[May 19] Join the Hopland Research and Extension Center on the evening of Thursday, May 19 from 6:30 until 9:00 p.m. to explore opportunities for Mendocino's participation in a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) a program that designates renewable sources of energy for local electricity consumers. Participants will learn how woody biomass is utilized locally in the production of bioenergy; how woody biomass utilization compares with other renewable resources; and how woody biomass is linked to healthy forests and healthy local economies.

This free event will take place at the Hopland Research and Extension Center located at 4070 University Rd in Hopland and is wheelchair accessible. Anyone with an interest in learning more about where Mendocino's electric power comes from, or who may be interested in exploring local choice for future renewable energy is invited to attend.

Speakers for the event include Greg Brehm, Director of Power Resources for Marin Clean Energy, Angie Lottes, Biomass Program Manager for the Watershed Research and Training Center, and Peter Tittmann, Academic Coordinator for the UC Berkeley Center for Forestry.
