The City of Nelson has decided not to move forward with the proposed development of $6 million district energy heating system, after studying the possibility for 10 years.

According to the Nelson Star, the city chose not to move forward with the project because it is financially too risky, despite the fact that much of the funds would have come from grants.

The district energy system would have used waste wood from local forests trucked into Nelson, to be used in a biomass boiler which would produce heat for downtown buildings in the city.
