Application for VA Biomass Facility Approved

The State Corporation Commission has approved an application for the construction of a biomass electric generating facility in Halifax County.

South Boston Energy LLC will use wood byproducts to generate electricity at the 50-megawatt plant and sell it to parent company Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative.

The project was approved on a 2-1 vote Thursday. Among the requirements commissioners placed on the project were a $180 million cost cap.
