Oneida Nation to address concerns about renewable energy plant
The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin will host an open house on December 16 to address concerns about its renewable energy project.

Oneida Seven Generations Corp. began work on a 70,000-square-foot facility that will convert waste into energy. Construction is on hold pending a review by the Bureau of Indian Affairs of the project.

"Once we find out what the questions are, and (residents are) able to ask the experts, I don't anticipate we'll have the problems that we're currently dealing with," CEO Kevin Cornelius told The Green Bay Press Gazette.

Some local officials oppose the project. The village of Ashwaubenon is considering a lawsuit to block the plant.
