Hats off to your efforts! I am a resident of Georgia, and this is the first i have heard of this. Maybe this is all happening on the local level. If this is or becomes a state issue, how can others help?

State legislature could enact legislation banning biomass, but one of the easiest ways IMO to change the dynamic state-wide would be to change the monopoly that Georgia Power has on regulations. Most other Southern states' solar industries are not hamstrung by state laws that prevent them from building large arrays. The solar group that built a small array here (Hanna Solar) told me they could easily have built one ten times as large, but that Georgia Power has a stranglehold on the state regulatory agency and solar is denied full participation in the energy marketplace in Georgia. This contrasts vividly with what is going on with solar industry in Florida and most other southern states.
