Transition to renewables

Georgia Power asked the state's public service commission for approval to convert the coal-fired Plant Mitchell to run on wood fuel. If approved, the retrofit will begin in 2011 and the biomass plant will start operating in mid-2012. The biomass plant will run on surplus wood from suppliers within a 100 mile radius of the plant, which is located near Albany, Georgia
