2 year study for the purpose of identifying and determining alternatives and workable feasibility of region wide large scale bio-waste electrical generating solutions for the Sierra Tahoe Region, and surrounding California and Nevada communities. Study cost includes $75,000 toward an initial 3rd party Request for Proposal for a grant in the amount of $1,500,000 from the Tahoe Sierra Clean Air Coalition.$1,575,000 total clean air investment
Feasibility team to consist of electrical generating producers from the region working together with economic councils, air quality representatives and waste management/recycling representatives from Washoe County, NV, Lyon County, NV Douglas County, NV, Placer County, CA, Eldorado County, CA, Alpine County, CA and Plumas County, CA. The study will identify and design workable solution options to reduce the effects of agency created burn smoke on the Lake Tahoe Basin and surrounding Sierra Communities by producing workable benchmark bio waste process solution recommendations. This includes large scale, workable pollution reduction bio mass electrical generating alternatives. The study and final report will be prepared by a qualified, scientific research organization. The meeting schedule, facilitation and program coordination will be facilitated by The Tahoe Sierra Clean Air Coalition.
