Cheap electricity customers might be interested to hear that a biomass plant has been granted planning permission in Wales, meaning 300,000 energy comparison householders could benefit from the renewable energy facility.
Anglesey Aluminium Metal Renewables will construct the 299MW station at Holyhead, which will produce enough energy to power a quarter of all the homes in Wales.
Energy minister Charles Hendry commented: "Biomass power stations such as this one in Anglesey will provide us a reliable, secure, flexible and renewable source of power. I am especially pleased that the plant offers the prospect of so many high-quality jobs in Anglesey.
"We want a balanced energy portfolio and we want biomass to play a key role in this," he added.
Meanwhile, a report by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has revealed that the prevalence of biomass-generated energy could see the proportion of imported energy rise to 81 per cent by 2020, with wood imports set to increase from 13 per cent to 68 per cent.
