The U. S. Forest Service has just announced awards to several BAC members for projects to convert forest waste biomass to energy. The Forest Service awards will go to Redding Rancheria Economic Development Corporation, Scotts Valley Energy Corporation, and Sierra Institute for Community and Environment.
