The Valdosta-Lowndes County Industrial Authority has submitted a deal with the group looking to bring the biomass plant to Valdosta, Wiregrass Power.

Board leaders with the industrial authority say the original contract for the land costs $430,000.

The new deal brings it down to $200,000.

It also would restrict any biomass energy development in that area.

"It's a stance that's being dictated by circumstance, said Industrial Authority Chairman Roy Copeland. "Some of those circumstances include of course how our governmental bodies have approached this project."

Copeland says there is no timetable for when the deal will be made.

Michael Noll, the President of WACE (Wiregrass Activist for Clean Energy) says he is happy members of the Industrial Authority are listening to the concerns of residents and hopes talks Biomass energy will end.

Many residents they say its a step in the right direction.
