"Rules that would make constructing large wood-burning power plants in the state much more difficult were proposed yesterday by the Patrick administration. If the regulations are made final, it could mean that three proposed large wood-burning, or biomass, plants in Russell, Springfield, and Greenfield would not be built because they would no longer be eligible for renewable energy credits that made them more competitive with traditional power sources. However, smaller plants that generate electricity and also use the heat are eligible and could be built." (05/04/11)
