Loggers say state-subsidized biomass company not paying bills

Loggers have cut off deliveries to a Maine biomass electricity generator because the company has stopped paying its bills, the head of an industry association said Tuesday.

Dana Doran, executive director of the Professional Logging Contractors of Maine, said loggers who provide wood chips and other biomass fuel haven’t been paid by the company, Stored Solar, since mid-February. Generally, he said, the loggers are paid within seven to 10 days of making a delivery.

He said the loggers, in response, are no longer delivering to the company, which has two generating sites in the state.
