The District of Sicamous, B.C., will begin construction of a new bioheat facility today, at a ceremony marking Earth Day.
According to The Salmon Arm Observer, the bioheat facility, located in the Sicamous Industrial Park, will help produce clean energy and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the community.
The $1.74 million facility will be comprised of a biomass boiler heating system and boiler house from Fink Machine, which will use wood waste to heat several buildings in the industrial park.
The District of Sicamous will receive $512,000 from the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program; $875,000 from the Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities Bioheat Program through Natural Resources Canada; and $175,000 through the Fraser Basin Council and the Community Energy Leadership Program. The district itself will invest $182,000 in the project.
