Updates from Adel, GA

January 5, 2023

Our community leads have reached a settlement agreement with the Spectrum Energy Georgia LLC in the operation of a proposed wood pellet plant in Adel. Effective December 24, 2022, the agreement includes more protections for public health than the permit authorized by state regulators, and stronger enforceability provisions in the case that Spectrum fails to comply with the settlement. In fact, if unable to fulfill its obligations to the Adel community by monitoring and controlling air pollution, Spectrum will not proceed to a second, more robust level of operations.

The details of the agreement can be found in this press release by the Southern Environmental Law Center, who represented our community leads in this legal action.

Hi, I’m doing research on your project in Adel and am wondering if the visualization tool is complete yet.
