Renewable incentives will favor biomass, biogas over wind, solar
The state Focus on Energy program will target its renewable energy funding toward biomass and biogas technologies, leaving fewer dollars available for wind energy and solar projects.
The Public Service Commission set a funding level of $10 million a year to provide incentives for renewable energy projects. But most of the 2012 budget has been committed to projects that were awarded incentives last year.
As a result, less than $3 million remains available to be awarded this year.
