Local Forestry

The Bancroft Combined Heat and Power Plant Initiative

The Bancroft Combined Heat and Power Plant is an initiative of County Power Corporation (CPC) and the Bancroft Minden Forest Company (BMFC) to develop a biomass (wood residue) Combined Heat and Power plant (CHP) to sell a minimum of 10MWe to the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) grid, provide contract kiln drying and district heating. The plant will strengthen the local primary forest products industry and be a major boost to the economy, positively affecting the lives of hundreds of people.
