The Honey Lake power plant is based in northeastern California in the town of Wendel (approximately 25 miles east of Susanville). The plant was built in 1989 with Greenleaf Power taking ownership in 2010.
The plant produces up to 30 megawatts of green energy and has a long-term agreement with PG&E for the power produced. The plant also utilizes the geothermal resources underfoot, making the plant a very efficient hybrid biomass/geothermal energy facility.
The Honey Lake plant is one of the largest private employers in the region. The plant currently has more 25 employees and is indirectly responsible for an additional 85 jobs in the region.
