Biomass: The Other Renewable Energy


Florida doesn't have the steadiest wind. And when it comes to solar, the Sunshine State has a lot of clouds. But one thing we have plenty of is yard waste.

Biomass is being eyed as one of the largest sources of renewable fuels in Florida. It could be a major part of a plan that will be sent to the Legislature at the end of the year.

The advisory group is part of the Florida Energy Commission, which will meet tomorrow in St. Petersburg. And on Thursday, the commission will host a 'Farm to Fuel' summit, looking at biofuels.
