SteelGrid is excited to be working on the Fort St. James Biomass project.

When completed, the Fort St. James facility will consume 307,000 metric tons of biomass a year, converting sawmill and logging waste from the British Columbia forestry industry and trees killed by the mountain pine beetle epidemic into electricity.

The plant will generate electricity to be sold to BC Hydra & Power Authority – the 40 MW electrical production capacity is enough to power almost 40,000 Canadian households.
