Cashing in the (wood) chips

Pagosa entrepreneurs push for renewable, local sources of energy
A whole tree chipper helps bring down the cost of producing wood chips for a biomass plant in Pagosa Springs. The plant will require 40,000-50,000 tons of wood chips annually to operate.
By using wood chips, a biomass plant expects to produce five megawatts of energy, enough to supply one-third of Pagosa Springs’ energy needs at peak usage. Rick House uses a bulldozer to pile wood chips at the Pagosa Springs Biomass Plant.
Jerry Smith, president of Pagosa Verde, talks about his plans for harnessing geothermal energy while sitting next to a town hot spring.
Rick House is counting on wood chips to help the local economy.
