(5/24/13) Wisconsin's Ho-Chunk Indian Tribe will create a waste-to-energy bio-mass plant. The U-S Energy Department said the Ho-Chunk was among five tribes around the country to be awarded technical assistance grants this week.

Officials say the project will convert municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, and other bio-mass into electricity. The new plant will generate about 1-to-2 megawatts. The Energy Department says it will analyze the tribe's plans for the bio-mass plant. Experts will review the tribe's plans for obtaining permits and financing.
