Roxboro Power Plant joined Capital Power's portfolio of power generation assets as a result of Capital Power's acquisition of Primary Energy Ventures in 2006.
Is located in Roxboro, North Carolina and is 100% owned and operated by Capital Power.
The electrical output from the Roxboro facility is sold under a Power Purchase Agreement to Progress Energy.
Roxboro Power Plant's three stoker boilers use a mixture of wood residuals, tire-derived fuel, and coal.
Wood waste is an abundant by-product fuel produced by North Carolina's extensive forestry-related industries.
Tire-derived fuel is the product of chipping waste tires to remove the metal from the tread.
Particulate emissions are controlled by the use of engineered fabric filter known as a baghouse, which keeps particulates from the plant well under state regulations.
