Event description
Join us on national Bioenergy Day to explore innovative new wood heat technology in Windsor and Dalton, Massachusetts in the Berkshires.

About this Event

This free tour will begin at 10 am at TTC Energy, LLC on Route 9 in Windsor - a new wood chip drying facility which creates a new type of fuel - semi-dry wood chips - used in new, state-of-the-art modern wood heating equipment. We'll explore the process and benefits of drying wood chips and how prices compare to propane and oil, as well as learn about incentives and grants that make modern wood heat even more affordable.

We'll then move a mile down the road to see an end-user of the semi-dry chips. Holiday Brook Farm in Dalton is installing a new chip-fueled district heating system - heating multiple farm buildings with one central system. We'll learn how the system works and why farms, or other facilities with multiple buildings, are good candidates for this type of heat.

The tour is hosted by the Massachusetts Statewide Wood Energy Team (MA SWET), which is coordinated by the Massachusetts Forest Alliance with funding from the USDA Forest Service.
