Site of biomass plant

Although the official ground breaking ceremony for the Sullivan County Bio Energy Project is scheduled for May 21, County Manager Greg Chanis announced that Pine Hill Construction started digging on Monday. The Biomass plant will supply heat, to the nursing home and jail and several other buildings and will produce about 10 percent of the electricity. (Greg Chanis sound)
The wood chip burning plant will reduce diesel fuel reliance by 125,000 gallon a year and reduce carbon emissions by 1,200 tons. In addition, it will keep $80,000 in the local economy and save the County $290,000 a year in energy costs.
