Critics concerned over pollution and regulation

by Derek Franz, Eagle Valley Enterprise

The topic of biomass is heating up around Eagle County these days.Last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced approval of a $40 million loan guarantee to Eagle Valley Clean Energy LLC to finance a renewable generating plant in Gypsum. The plant will utilize wood chips for fuel and will have a capacity of 11.5 megawatts, enough to power nearly 10,000 homes. The grant is part of the USDA’s Rural Development initiative.
