Plumas County biomass project ribbon cutting draws a crowd

This is only the beginning — a theme on the lips of many of the speakers at the ribbon cutting for the new biomass boiler project April 6.

The torrential downpour on Friday afternoon could not put a damper on the excitement of the staff of Sierra Institute, especially biomass project leader Camille Swezy, as she greeted community members and forestry employees for the welcome and ribbon cutting for the brand new biomass project, which will provide both heat and fuel for the county building in Quincy.
