Wiregrass Activists for Clean Energy brought out signs saying no to biomass.

Officials weren't thrilled to see the group but activists say they support solar energy it's the biomass plant they have a problem with.

You can't do anything in a community without certain people that get upset about it, but we're going to continue to press forward because this is in the best interest of the community," said Valdosta-Lowndes Industrial Authority Director Brad Lofton.

"Solar is the way to go but we are adamantly opposed to the idea of a biomass incineration project because of the well known health risk," said WACE President Michael Noll.

Construction for the biomass plant is expected to begin this spring.
