Biomass Reality Check

Posted by Robyn, January 29, 2013

At a city commission workshop in January, opponents of Gainesville’s biomass plant got a long-sought chance to air their views and brought up some details of contract negotiations that had not been discussed before.

Although commissioners took no action at the workshop, they said they stuck by their commitment to complete the contract for the project, which is 75 percent done and scheduled to go into operation by the end of the year.

At the workshop, which was held as part of a settlement lawsuit that Gainesville Citizens CARE brought against the city, attorney Ray Washington argued against the biomass plant, now known as Gainesville Renewable Energy Center (GREC).
