The deadline to submit a bid is Thursday, February 27 at 4:00pm.
The $3.2 Million Dollar Heat and Power Generation Plant is located within the Golden Grain Energy facility in Mason City, Iowa. Due to termination of a lease and subsequent property abandonment, the equipment is now surplus and will be sold by GGE. The equipment will be sold as a package to be relocated.

The renewable energy company sold steam for ethanol production and sold surplus power was to be sold back to the grid via an interconnect with a local utility company.
