Plans are being made for a Colorado company to open a new alternative energy plant in north-central Iowa. Creative Energy Systems of Larkspur Colorado has submitted a proposal to the Mason City City Council for a ten-year tax abatement plan.
The proposal would allow the company to construct a plant that would take waste material that would be headed for the Landfill of North Iowa and turn it into a synthetic gas, which in turn would be used to generate power for Alliant Energy. The president of Creative Energy Systems says that the plant would create between 50 and 60 jobs.
The council is scheduled to take up the tax abatement plan at its October 4th meeting.
