Washington, D.C. – Congressman Wally Herger (R-CA) issued the following statement in response to the announcement that Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) will close its biomass power plant in Loyalton, CA:

“I was deeply saddened to learn that SPI will be forced to suspend operations of its biomass power plant in Loyalton. It is outrageous that SPI and other forest products companies are being continually forced to make decisions like these in large part because federal policies and litigation by radical environmental groups are virtually shutting down access to our national forests. I thank and applaud SPI for its continued investment in our communities and for pursuing other opportunities to operate its power plant.

Maybe this has something to do with why there are not chipping for a couple of years now

I don't know about SPI,  but there are sure huge piles of chipped biomass along side the Inskip to Butte Meadows turn where the blacktop project is working...  makes one wonder where that stuff is going if SPI shutting down chipping or the chip conversion facilities ?
