Save Money with Wood Chip or Pellet Systems
New Hampshire has many wood pellet and wood chip heating systems that are saving schools, businesses, performing arts centers, nursing homes, housing projects and other large heat users, tens of thousands of dollars each year. You will learn about several of these successful projects from the "project champions", installers, suppliers, and architects who made them happen.
You will start the afternoon with a tour of the White Mountain Schools pellet boiler system and then hear presentations on other installed systems. Experts will be on hand to answer your questions and help you get your project on track.
This workshop is FREE and open to the public.
