February 10, 2014, Nakusp, B.C. – The small town of Nakusp,
B.C. is investigating the possibility of introducing a biomass energy system
into the community’s power grid.

 

The project is being driven by the amount of wood waste
being created by two local sawmills, Pacific Island Pole and Box Lake Lumber.
Both mills are shipping the waste outside of the community just to have it
removed from the mill sites.

 

The bioenergy system is also being considered in order to provide
an alternative energy resource for the community in light of an expected rise
to hydro rates in B.C. in the next 25 years, and the fact that the community
has no access to natural gas.
