Biomass incineration is bad for health, environment

Why should Rhode Island electric ratepayers subsidize an incinerator? If state legislators expand the definition of net metering resources to include “biomass” fuels, this will be the result. When you hear “renewable energy” you think of something green, clean, and good for our environment, like solar or wind energy. But this proposal is different. This bill would change the definition of renewable energy to include the burning of wood – and construction debris in particular – which is known to release high levels of particulate matter and carbon dioxide. This would negatively affect our state’s ability to meet our Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative commitments and Resilient Rhode Island Act
