It will NOT be like throwing logs on a fire, but Southern Oregon University is talking about burning wood for heating and electricity. 

A couple of the university's boilers are due for replacement, so SOU floated a plan for a cogeneration facility (to make steam and electricity) fired by biomass--wood waste. 

The process of gauging public opinions just wrapped up, and SOU reports generally favorable responses. 

Project leaders visit to explain the next steps.
