HALIFAX, March 3, 2010 (The Chronicle Herald) -Nova Scotia Power still wants to use biomass to generate electricity.

After having a proposed $60-million biomass project rejected eight months ago, the utility and NewPage Port Hawkesbury Ltd. are back holding talks.

"The discussions that have been going on are just trying to figure out how to make the project feasible," Robin McAdam, Nova Scotia Power vice-president (sustainability), confirmed Tuesday. "We took one run at moving the project along, which was unsuccessful. We're just trying to find the formula that makes it feasible."
