Proposed Tahoe Area Biomass Plant Takes another Step Forward.
Placer County’s proposed Cabin Creek Biomass Facility project that will use forest waste to produce renewably sourced electricity cleared another hurdle Tuesday at the regularly scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting. The Board unanimously denied the third-party appeal of the December 6, 2012, Planning Commission certification of the Project’s Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and approval of the Project’s Conditional Use Permit.
The project proposes to construct a two-megawatt electric power generation facility on a 3.7-acre portion of the 148-acre County-owned Eastern Regional Materials Recovery Facility and Transfer Station site on State Route 89 between Tahoe City and Truckee.
