CARROLL COUNTY UNITED HOSTS BIOMASS WORKSHOP

by Christian Mower on March 21, 2013

A COMMUNITY ACTIVIST SAYS HEATING WITH WOOD CAN HELP SLOW THE RISE OF ENERGY COSTS AND LOCAL TAX RATES – WHILE CONTRIBUTING TO THE LOCAL ECONOMY – BUT IS IT RIGHT FOR YOUR TOWN, SCHOOL OR BUSINESS?

CYNDI PAULIN OF CARROLL COUNTY UNITED – PART OF THE UNITED WAY – SAYS HER “BALANCING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP TEAM” WILL HOST A PUBLIC TOUR OF THE MOUNTAIN VIEW NURSING HOME IN OSSIPEE FRIDAY MORNING MARCH 22, 2013. THE IDEA IS TO TOUR THE WOOD PELLET BOILER SYSTEM AT THE NEW NURSING HOME AND SEE HOW A LARGE SCALE PELLET HEATING SYSTEM WORKS.

PAULIN SAYS ENERGY AUDITS OFTEN SHOW SWITCHING TO WOOD-BASED FUELS CAN PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT COST-SAVINGS – AND FRIDAY’S TOUR IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW SWITCHING TO WOOD FUELS CAN FIT INTO A PLAN TO STABILIZE LONG TERM ENERGY COSTS.

PAULIN SAYS ENERGY IS ONE PART OF EVERYONE’S BUDGET WHERE CAREFUL PLANNING CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE – AND COST SAVINGS ARE ATTAINABLE.

SHE SAYS EXPERTS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS FROM AROUND CARROLL COUNTY WILL BE AVAILABLEF FRIDAY MORNING DURING THE TOUR TO PROVIDE DETAILS ABOUT WOOD FIRED HEATING SYSTEMS AND SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS IN THEIR TOWNS.

THE TOUR STARTS AT 9:15 A.M. AT THE NURSING HOME AT 93 WATER VILLAGE RD. IN OSSIPEE. AN OPTIONAL LUNCH AND NETWORKING SESSION WILL START AT NOON. FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL PAULIN AT (603) 323-8139.
