Dec 11, 2011, Greenwood, ME - Maine Energy Systems has converted a local ski lodge from heating oil to wood pellets, reducing heating costs and the hill's carbon footprint at the same time.

Mount Abram in Greenwood is going all green to heat its ski lodge. The western Maine ski resort is using locally produced wood pellets, and no fossil fuels, to warm up its lodge. Mount Abram has taken delivery of a wood-pellet boiler that will
heat the 5,500-square-foot base lodge using wood pellets delivered from
a local distribution center. It means Mount Abram will no longer
require 12,000 gallons of No. 2 heating oil per year to heat its lodge.

MES is a renewable energy company promoting the use of wood pellets for residential and community heating in the northeastern US.
