Drax power will need 15 million tonnes of wood pellets to meet demand for 2018.
Drax power station is located in Selby, North Yorkshire. The power plant has 6 turbines which can produce 3,960 megawatts of energy. These six turbines produce enough energy to satisfy the needs of 6 million homes and businesses in the region which is equal to 7% of the United Kingdoms total electricity supply.
Because of its size the coal fired plant was once the largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the UK.
