Review of Information Gathering Tours
Danville, VT, School District, March 6th, wood chip system was expensive ($1.1M) but is very efficient and quiet. It runs at about 1/3rd the cost of oil and produces only a very small amount of ash residue (which is reusable). The system was obtained from a Canadian firm and is computerized with remote control.
Town of Monroe, March 7th, wood pellet system cost $21K and is used to heat one-half of the Town Hall building. It is low maintenance with virtually no pollution.
White Mountain School, March 14th, wood pellet costs about $4,100/year compared to the $20K/year that they were paying for oil. The system has three small stoves and the initial cost was about $120K.
- A second tour of the White Mountain School will be arranged to allow others to observe their system
- A tour of the Lisbon Highway Department garage remains to be scheduled
- Attendance at the 4th Annual Local Energy Solutions Conference on 31 March was encouraged
- A decision was made to replace light bulbs at the Opera House/Town Building (venue and common areas) with more energy efficient bulbs as they burn out.
- The ECC still has about $1,000 available for worthwhile purposes
- Rodney Edwards suggest using the expanded CTC/Broadcast TV capability to disseminate information about energy efficiency
- Ron Bolt will maintain records on energy (fuel & electric) usage by town facilities on information provided by Town staff
Next meeting: Wednesday, April 18th, 9 AM, Highway Garage
Ron Bolt, Secretary
