Wood biomass will heat 5 public buildings in PEI
Prince Edward Island has approved two proposals that will see five public buildings in the province heated by wood biomass.
Atlantic Bioheat will supply biomass-based heat to M. E. Callaghan and Hernewood junior high schools.
Wood4heating will supply biomass-derived heat to Three Oaks High School, Bluefield High School, and O’Leary Community Hospital.
Both companies, Atlantic Bioheat and Wood4heating will be responsible for the capital costs of installing and operating the heating units.
There are some stipulation on the biomass initiatives. The wood for the new biomass locations must be harvested in a sustainable manner from a woodlot that has a registered forest management plan. Additionally, the companies are required to use local resources and create local expertise with biomass.
