Helps PG&E meet its renewable portfolio requirements
Creates quality living wage jobs – 35 full time direct hires and approximately 100 dedicated indirect jobs created to fuel and maintain the facility
The former coal-fired plant that was once described as: “Easily the biggest county polluter …”1 is now setting air emission standards for the rest of the United States with state of the art air quality control equipment
DTE Stockton, located within the Stockton Port District, produces up to 45 MW of clean renewable energy. The plant utilizes 320,000 tons of woody biomass fuel annually, which creates electricity to meet the needs of 45,000 homes.
The new facility replaces coal power with carbon-neutral biomass power, helping the state meet its AB 32 greenhouse gas emissions goals. All renewable energy generated at DTE Stockton is sold to Pacific Gas & Electric Company under a long-term contract.
The plant’s fuel comes from a variety of sources. These include: wood chips, urban wood waste, logs from forest thinning, tree/orchard trimmings, and agricultural waste such as nut shells and fruit pits.
The plant operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and maintains a staff of 35 employees with approximately another 100 others indirectly involved with DTE Stockton’s fuel supply infrastructure.
DTE Stockton is owned and operated by an affiliate of DTE Energy Services (DTEES) of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
DTEES is committed to nationally cleaner energy and has completed similar coal-to-biomass conversions in Cassville, WI and Bakersfield, CA.
