Utility Commission pushes back Willmar, Minn., power plant renovation
WILLMAR -- The Willmar Municipal Utilities Commission is delaying for now the multimillion-dollar power plant improvement project.
The purpose of the project was to allow the utility to generate power by burning both corn cobs or other biomass and coal in boiler No. 3, according to Wesley Hompe, interim co-manager.
Boiler No. 3 primarily burns coal and has natural gas burners in it to supplement the coal when more power is needed.
