Keeping Energy Dollars Local

This video from Resource Innovations, a program within the Institute for a Sustainable Environment, details how heating buildings with woody biomass can save money and promote carbon-neutral energy uses. The video highlights the first public school in Oregon to switch from a heating-oil system to one based on woody biomass. As communities struggle with climate change and rising energy costs one isolated rural community is using what’s in their backyard to heat their school and save money. The episode features Nils Christoffersen from Wallowa Resources, a community-based non-profit, Brad Royce, Superintendent of Schools for the Enterprise School District and Cameron Hamilton of McKinstry Co, the contractor who supervised construction. A companion guidebook, Wood Heat Solutions: A Community Guide to Biomass Thermal Projects is available from Resource Innovations.
