Maine biomass company owes money to dozens of loggers

Heath Bunnell has for the past 17 years supplied wood to a facility in Ryegate, Vermont, which generates electricity from burning wood. The fourth-generation lumberjacks never had a problem getting paid until Stored Solar took over the biomass operations years ago.

At one point, the West Enfield, Maine-based company owed Bunnell $63,000. The total is now lower, but it still owes him more than $24,000, he wrote in a letter to the Vermont Public Utilities Commission last month.

Now Stored Solar has filed for bankruptcy, and Bunnell is among dozens of New England lumberjacks who the company still owes money.
