This is a great organization with a lot of useful information. Follow the link above and sign up with their program to help retailers and users get together.

Progress Energy has recently signed a contract with Biomass Investment Group to purchase electricity from a proposed generation plant to be fueled with a tall-growing grass that will be grown on 15,000 acres surrounding the plant.

You can find more info here at Progress Energy’s website.
