ROTHSCHILD, WI, March 31, 2011 (Wausau Daily Herald) -The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' approval Monday of a proposed biomass energy plant leaves just one obstacle in the way of the $250 million project.

The state's Public Service Commission, including new Chairman Phil Montgomery, is a three-member panel charged with regulating the state's utilities and vetting new construction projects. The PSC will rule on whether the power plant -- a joint project of Milwaukee utility We Energies and Domtar Paper -- would serve customers and residents well.

PSC regulators can schedule a meeting on the proposal at any time. The commissioners typically discuss cases at an open meeting in Madison, then finalize an order to be voted on at their next meeting.
