The loss of a biomass-fuelled power plant on Nova Scotia's South Shore has left the region's largest sawmill and others scrambling to find somewhere to send wood chips and bark left over from their operations.

Brooklyn Power has been offline since high winds on Feb. 18 knocked over its stack, causing extensive damage to it and a warehouse at the Brooklyn, N.S., site. A spokesperson for Emera, the utilty that operates the plant, has said it will take months to repair the damage.
