Rio Bravo Rocklin Biomass Plant Named Top Renewable by POWER Magazine
Rocklin was named one of the top renewable power plants in North America by POWER magazine, a national energy industry publication which featured the plant on its December 2009 cover. Rocklin was featured as a result of an impressive turnaround in performance by the plant following a $14 million investment in 2008 to refurbish the plant’s boiler. Frequent outages were eliminated and today the facility is one of the top operating power plants in IHI Power Services Corp. fleet
