Caseus Energy plans on hold

By  | 

October marks two years since Caseus Energy announced its plan of opening a bio-fuel plant in Greenwood.
But so-far, the site of the plant remains nothing but a field.
So, the big question remains, will the plant ever make its way to Greenwood?

"I really believe it's going to happen, I believe we are only weeks away… and once it starts, it's going to be a great thing,” said Greenwood Mayor Jim Schecklman.

Despite the 2 year delay citizens of greenwood are still very excited about the project and still believe in their prosperous future.

"I do believe it will happen… administration here in Greenwood is a really progressive one. And they are just a fine group of people; and I know they will do everything possible to see that it happens,” said a resident of Greenwood Emily Fijalkiewicz.

"It takes a lot to take a project up and going. So, if it took 2 years well, it took two years, but at least we have something to look forward to,” said local business owner Jessica Johnson.

The Mayor says he's been working hand-in-hand with Caseus Energy.
Schecklaman says the recession and some legal work with the state of Wisconsin is really what has been pushing the project behind schedule.
But Schecklman says two years later creating new jobs is still important.

"The economy appears to be recovering a little bit, but jobs are jobs, we are always going to need jobs, and that's not going to change," said Schecklman.

The Mayor says the project is a 20-million dollar investment and will help create around 32 jobs for the area.
