North Springfield wood chip plant hits snag

Posted: Updated:
NORTH SPRINGFIELD, Vt. -

Two companies looking to build a wood chip plant in North Springfield have hit a snag.

In recent testimony, Public Service employees said the proposed plant plant does not meet Vermont's energy needs and it does not contribute to renewable energy goals.

The Rutland Herald reports this testimony comes days before project officials are presenting to the Public Service Board and they fear this will affect their chances of getting a contract with a state utility.

The state is also concerned wood chips being shipped in could carry invasive species like the emerald ash borer and Asian longhorned beetle.
