[NEWS] ReEnergy To Close Lyonsdale, New York Biomass Energy Facility
– December 14, 2017, WWNY
With less than two weeks to go before Christmas, there’s some bad economic news from Lewis County. A business is closing its doors – affecting more than 100 jobs in the region.
The ReEnergy plant in Lyonsdale is pulling the plug on its biomass energy plant on December 29.
The plant, which turns north country wood into electricity, employs 22 people. It also supports more than 100 jobs in other industries such as logging and trucking.
When the plant closes, 18 workers will be laid off, a few others will be reassigned to other ReEnergy plants, and the ripple effect will be felt throughout the region.
