WE Energies to hold meeting on proposed biomass energy plant

From an article by Kevin Murphy in the Marshfield News Herald:

MADISON -- WE Energies will host a Feb. 20 open house to update residents about its planned $250 million biomass power plant at the Domtar paper mill in Rothschild.

Since announcing the plant in September, WE Energies has been going "door-to-door" and meeting with community leaders to gather local questions and concerns about the plant that would burn mill residue and trucked-in waste wood. The facility would produce enough power supply 40,000 homes, said WE Energies spokesman Brian Manthey.

"We're still finding the answers to questions about emissions, construction schedules and early phases of operations but we can let people know what we know," said Manthey of the open house, planned for noon to 4 p.m. at the Rothschild Holiday Inn & Suites.
