Who we are
Marquette Green Energy, LLC (MGE), a minority owned renewable energy development company located in Belleville, MI.
We are developing a 34 MW woody biomass heat and power (CHP) energy plant located at the former KI Sawyer AFB in Marquette County, Michigan. Substantial existing infrastructure of what was once an important Strategic Air Command facility will play a key role in reducing the time and cost of this “Green” renewable energy project. The site’s fundamentals – plentiful low cost access to biomass fuel, modern infrastructure, adjacent major industrial users of steam and electricity, and the immediate availability of a highly skilled work force make this a superior energy project.
Biomass is the base-load energy source that provides dependable renewable energy. Job creation in staffing the facility provides family sustaining jobs, which is important to the Upper Peninsula. Clean dependable biomass energy also adds to the health of our forests, as it is a major piece in the matrix in keeping our forest sustainable. Utilization of fire or parasitic damaged trees, wood waste from operating sawmills, clean unaltered construction debris, and urban derived material both which are traditionally land-filled or burned are all sources for the plant’s fuel supply.
