Gainesville Hires Third Party for GRU Audit, Examines GREC Contract

Gainesville city officials will hire a third party to audit Gainesville Regional Utilities in order to examine the biomass contract between GRU and Gainesville Renewable Energy Center. The audit will cost over $180,000, according to city officials. The contract, signed in 2009, allows GRU to buy power from the GREC biomass plant, and ultimately raised prices for GRU customers.
