Public Utilities – Power Companies – Environmental – Renewable Energy – Biomass – Primary Harvest TressState ex rel. Utilities Commission v. Environmental Defense Fund G.S. § 62-133.8(a) defines “renewable energy resource” to include “a biomass resource, including agricultural waste, animal waste, wood waste, spent pulping liquors, combustible residues, combustible liquids, combustible gases, energy crops, or landfill methane.” This definition includes primary harvest trees.
