With New Hampshire biomass supports on hold, what about the waste wood?

While forestry industry advocates push to overturn New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu's veto of a bill to provide price supports for biomass plants, some experts say more widespread use of pellet stoves could help find new uses for low-grade wood products.

Sununu vetoed SB365 in June, citing concerns about high electric costs in the state, where residential rates are 50% higher than the national average. "These bills send our state in exactly the wrong direction," the governor said in a news release.
