FORT DRUM — Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand is working to try and persuade the state legislature and Gov. Kathleen C. Hochul to include biomass as renewable energy, thus allowing the ReEnergy Black River biomass power facility, which supplies all of Fort Drum’s electricity, to remain open.

ReEnergy is scheduled to close at the end of March, and Fort Drum is expected to return to purchasing electricity from the regional electricity grid.
