Flagstaff, Az. - Arizona utility regulators are exploring ramping up the use of forest biomass for power. The first-ever workshop on forest bioenergy was hosted by the Arizona Corporation Commission earlier this month in Flagstaff. 

 The Arizona Daily Sun reports that representatives from some of the state's largest utilities, businesses, nonprofits, the Forest Service, and state and local governments all had a chance to weigh in at the workshop. It focused on the problem of biomass in Arizona's forests and the opportunities and commercial viability of using that forest material to generate power.

 Among the topics discussed was what it might cost ratepayers to support an expansion of bioenergy in the state, with estimates ranging from $4 per month to less than $1 per month.
