[NEWS] Baker City, Oregon to Discuss Biomass Opportunities
– August 17, 2016, My Eastern Oregon
A meeting has been arranged by Economic Development Director Greg Smith with PGE for next week in order for Baker County Commissioners as well as Baker City Representatives to discuss the opportunity to utilize Baker County bio mass in their generation for electricity.
According to Commissioner Mark Bennett with the recent fires and the upcoming “Face of the Elkhorns Project” Baker County is well situated to provide a significant source for the green power requirements of PGE.
If successful this partnership would not only provide a market, but Baker County jobs in the removal, transportation and processing of the material.
