Upcoming Public Forum on Modern Wood Heating Systems: Local Heat for a Local Economy

The Windham Wood Heat Initiative (WWH) will hold a free public information forum on modern wood heating systems on November 16 from 5:30 – 7:30pm at the Marlboro College Graduate Center in Brattleboro. Modern wood heating systems are low emission, high efficiency systems that provide much of the convenience of conventional fossil fuel boilers—without the fossil fuels. Heating with locally sourced, sustainably harvested, and renewable wood pellets provides numerous environmental, economic, and social benefits. These systems come in a wide range of sizes adaptable for residences as well as large commercial operations.

The WWH is a program funded through the Public Service Department’s Clean Energy Development Fund. The program is led by a consortium of local and regional partners that formed to assist municipal and school buildings convert to heating with local, sustainable wood while addressing those buildings’ energy efficiency and durability needs. This work is part of a greater vision to build local economic capacity and turn Windham County into a hub of modern wood heat. This comprehensive approach to economic development of wood heat includes integration of a robust supply chain infrastructure and expanded local markets, all of which is supported by highly trained professionals.

Seating is limited. For more information about WWH or to register for the November 16 public forum, please contact Guy Payne at 802-376-9262 or guy@seon.info.
