Pushmataha County Proposed Site of Power Plant

April 6, 2011

Clayton possible site for construction of a 1-Megawatt power plant.

A site in Pushmataha County has been selected by CRU (Clean Renewable Utility) Energy Corporation as a possible location for the construction of a 1-Megawatt power plant.

Clayton Councilman, Dan Nix, has been coordinating with CRU to survey local conditions that would be appropriate for one of the several plants that are going to be constructed across Texas and Oklahoma.

According to CRU they have plans to construct a biogas facility in Ada and this renewable energy production strategy will be duplicated several times. “With the recent support of the USDA and the Biomass Crop Assistance Program, growers of energy crops are realizing very healthy economic returns on the production of specified crops,” said CRU.

The proposed plant that might be build in Clayton will be fueled by bio methane gas produced by the digestion of sorghum forage seed crops, all grown locally. It has been estimated that it requires 1000 acres of sorghum plants to generate 1 Megawatt of electricity.

CRU states that there are no negative impacts due to their plants. The economic impacts, in the form of jobs, taxes, crop purchases and additional business for merchants could be a big economic boost for Clayton and the surrounding areas.

There will be a Town Meeting held on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 where CRU will be giving more details on the proposed plant and be answering any and all questions. For time and place of the meeting contacted Clayton City Hall.

And we cannot deny that the mere fact that we live in this planet the more we struggle from afflictions. this is true because of the economic status that we have today. And the economy leads to a domino effect. the one that we are facing today is the never ending price increase of fuel. Which mainly boost the urgency of many power plant to create a more efficient fuel which is the bio- gas. The car maker also responded to wishes for additional fuel-efficient vehicles, and that has become the focal point of its climb back to success. Now, the car maker says it will dedicate one of its main laboratory facilities to finding new ways to save fuel.
