Biofuel tested in New York City power plant
The plant was the Charles Poletti Power Project in Queens, a plant that usually operates using natural gas or heating oil. The biofuel test was the result of New York Gov. George Pataki's executive order last year that requires state agencies and public authorities to use more biofuels. it makes sense to test biofuels in Poletti, since the state will shut the plant down sometime before 2010.
Unrelated to green cars: how many of you are using Firefox 2.0? I just switched to it this week and am now slightly in awe of the predictive search box feature. For example, I typed in Poletti and it suggested "Poletti Power Plant", among other things. What doesn't Google know?
