ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) - We Energies moves another step forward on its proposed biomass plant in Rothschild.

We Energies spokesman Brian Manthey tells Newsline 9 the state DNR gave preliminary approval on two air pollution permits.

The DNR will hold a public hearing on the permit application March 1st at the Stoney Creek Inn in Rothschild.

Manthey says the Public Service Commission is expected to vote on project approval in March.

Project leaders say the plant would bring hundreds of jobs to the area.
