Oneida Nation plans to restart work on renewable energy project
The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin plans to restart work on a renewable energy project within 30 days, an executive said.

Oneida Seven Generations Corp. began work on a 70,000-square-foot facility that will convert waste into energy. But in response to concerns from a nearby company, the tribe is making some changes to the project.

"As a result we're making some minor changes to the site plan before we move forward," chief executive officer Kevin Cornelius told The Green Bay Press-Gazette.

When fully operational, the plant will convert up to 150 tons of garbage each day into enough electricity for 3,000 homes. Local officials and some residents are questioning the project.
