Varying shades of green:
ReVenture had asked the N.C. Utilities Commission to declare that the trash and yard wastes the plant will consume, and the gas it will produce, are renewable energy resources.
Blue Ridge opposes the use of biomass, a catch-all term for organic wastes, to make energy because burning it releases pollutants.
I'm going to try to avoid my usual (and probably painful to read) didactic approach to this issue, in the hopes that some of you readers will step up and do some trash-talking.
