November 27, 2013, Nelson, B.C. – A new study commissioned
by city officials in Nelson recommends that biomass should be used to heat the
community.

The study, produced by Associated Engineering in Vancouver,
suggests that the previous suggestion of using Kootenay Lake to provide power
is feasible but not cost-effective compared to biomass.

The study suggests that there is enough biomass within a
100km radius to provide the necessary volume of woody biomass needed to fuel a
district energy system for the community.

The estimated cost of the project would be approximately $20
million, depending on the piping costs associated with the plant’s location in
proximity to building throughout Nelson.

The findings of the study will be presented to Nelson City
Council this spring.
