MCBAIN — Have you ever wondered how wood is transformed into electricity?
Today, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., you could learn a little bit more about the process by taking a tour of Viking Energy of McBain.
The tour is part of National Bioenergy Day, an event intended to highlight organic energy sources such as wood.
In addition to representatives of Viking Energy, who will conduct multiple tours throughout the day and answer questions about bioenergy, representatives from a number of other organizations related to bioenergy also will be present.
Tours of Biewer Lumber and Hydrolake will be conducted as part of the event, as well.
Free hotdogs will be given away from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to the first 100 people who show up for the tour.
The event is completely free of charge and open to anyone. For more information, visit www.michiganbiomass.com or call (989) 763-0672.
