Why Wood?

Beyond the Renewable Argument ~ Per Plant

  • Fueled by an in-state resource ~ $5.75-7.0 million fuel dollars stay in state
  • Direct employment of 19 costs = $1.5-2.0 million per plant
  • Indirect employment = 80-100 per plant
  • Property tax expenditures in excess of $100K per year
  • Permit fees in excess of $50K
  • Supplier fees & taxes
  • State Income Taxes
  • Employment taxes** Total direct economic benefit of the 4 threatened plants is over $44 million per year and could cost as many at 400-500 jobs!
