In September, 2009, WTIP’s First Thursday Community Conversations Program featured a discussion about a proposed district energy biomass plant to be funded in part by the proposed 1 percent sales tax.
Join WTIP’s Jay Andersen and Barbara Jean Johnson for an open community conversation on biomass energy in Cook County. Chuck Hartley, an expert on biomass heat and energy conservation systems and director of energy management services for LHB Inc., Buck Benson of the Cook County Local Energy Project, USFS Fuels Planner Patty Johnson, and City Councilor and Public Utilities Board Member Tim Kennedy were in the studio to answer questions and discuss the issues.
