The U.S. Air Force and New Generation Biomass LLC have entered into a license agreement to explore the development of a biomass-fired power generation facility on Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico.
The license grants New Generation Biomass limited access to around 80 acres of the base to determine the location’s suitability for the proposed Black Bear Biomass Energy Facility. The facility would provide up to 20 MW of power to the El Paso Electric Grid, from which the base purchases its electricity.
The current agreement could result in an Enhanced Use Lease, which is a tool the Air Force uses to lease real property assets to developers seeking to partner in projects with the Air Force. If approved, the lease would provide the installation with either cash or in-kind payments to help fund Holloman needs.
