MILWAUKEE, WI, Sept. 3, 2013 (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) - At the newest power plant in Wisconsin, fuel will come from close to home.

Unlike coal, which is brought in by train from Wyoming and Appalachia, biomass will be culled from the sawmills and forests of northern Wisconsin.

Most of the waste wood that will supply the $268 million We Energies andDomtar power plant will come from within 75 miles of Rothschild, said Jim Freiberg of Domtar.
