Greenleaf Power acquires plant in Plainfield, hires 32

PLAINFIELD, Conn. – Sacramento-based Greenleaf Power has acquired a 37.5 megawatt biomass plant in Plainfield, creating 32 full time jobs.

The company burns wood scrap from construction, orchard trimmings and nut shells. The plant should benefit from recent home construction growth, with new construction creating an ongoing fuel supply.

The deal closed in July for an undisclosed price and expands Greenleaf’s plants to six with a combined total of 180 megawatts. Four of the plants are located in California, with the other located in Quebec City, Quebec. The company employs more than 180 and supports nearly 700 full time employees that supplies the company’s plants.
