Burney Forest Power, a biomass plant in eastern Shasta County with about 25 employees, has given notice that it will cease operations around the end of September.
And the plant's closure could be felt beyond the doors of its operation.
Shasta Green sells Burney Forest Power its wood waste and then purchases the steam Burney Forest Power generates. The steam is used in Shasta Green's kiln. Shasta Green and Burney Forest Power also operate on the same property on Highway 299 in Burney.
