CT Bill 1138 sets bad biopower precedents


A bill being considered in the Connecticut legislature is designed, among other things, to reduce the state’s import of dirty biomass power from Maine and New Hampshire, and promote bioenergy development in Connecticut itself. The problem with tampering with the state’s renewable portfolio standard is, it’s easy to get it wrong when the job is rushed. PFPI and our partner organization, the Project for Energy Accountability, submitted these comments on why the Connecticut legislature needs to go back to the drawing board on biomass, and why it’s especially important for the state to recognize that burning biomass emits greenhouse gases.
