Thanks to all you who called, emailed and supported SB 129!
Because of everyone’s hard work NH will continue to support low-emission, locally generated, renewable energy and the future of our biomass plants!
As some of you have heard, on Tuesday July 11th at 12:01 AM Senate Bill 129 went into law.
SB 129 is critical to the survival of New Hampshire’s six independent biomass plants. Timberland owners and the forest products businesses rely on the low-grade timber markets that these biomass power plants provide.
Without these power plants, New Hampshire would lose most of its low-grade timber markets, and without these markets, forestry, logging, and sawmilling would look very different.
Foresters and landowners would have lost an important tool for sustainable forestry. Loggers would have lost an important market for their timber. Sawmills would have lost an important market for mill waste and farmers would have lost wood ash.
RMI wants to personally thank all of you for taking the time to send letters, make calls, attend hearings, and testify on this important piece of legislation. Without your help SB 129 might have not become law!
