A couple weeks ago I spent the evening at the biomass power plant at Middlebury College taking pictures in preparation for the next painting in my series about Vermont's forests. Jim Lathrop of Bristol and Mike Moser at the college worked with me very generously to make this possible. Above you see George, who is unloading a truckload of wood chips at the college. The floor of that "bin" is fifteen feet below grade, so there's a lot more bio mass there than meets the eye.
