County APC slates August 26 vote on proposed biomass-energy plant in Scottsburg PDF Print E-mail

    A special meeting of the Scott County Area Plan Commission (APC) has been scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 26, at the Courthouse.
    At this meeting, members of the APC will determine if a development plan submitted by Liberty Green Renewables L.LC. meets their approval. If approval of the plan is given, development of the proposed biomass-energy plant can go forward.
    Liberty Green partners have been working with Scottsburg officials and the Scott County Economic Development Corporation for several months. The site for the proposed plant is on some 44 acres accessed by U.S. Highway 31 South and just north of the city's newest water tower.
    Larry Ott and Terrance “Terry” Naulty, both partners in the venture, represented Liberty Green at both the Scott County Board of Zoning (BZA) appeals and the APC meeting that followed on Wednesday, August 12.
They offered an attractive package, explaining that the local plant will be called the Scottsburg Renewable Energy Center and will be similar to a plant they are developing in Crawford County near Milltown. Once up and working, the Scottsburg center will generate enough electrical power for about 20,000 homes by burning wood chips that will in turn heat water, changing it to steam to power a turbine. Liberty Green will then sell electricity generated on the Midwest power grid.
