Wood pellets part of local clean energy drive in US
A wood pellet boiler project is set to benefit residents of an apartment building in New Hampshire, US.
The Berlin Housing Authority-owned complex aims to save around $11,000 (€8,500) a year once the boilers are in place. It also hopes to add water conversion features, programme thermostats and upgrade its hot water system too.
This is part of an overall movement, called the Berlin Model Neighbourhood Project, which wants to shift the region away from imported oil dependence.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen was quoted as commending the house authority on the move, saying it was ‘leading the way in local energy efficiency’.
