Nelson, B.C., is inching forward with its plan to build a heat-producing biomass boiler fuelled by lumber mill waste.
Consultants for Nelson Hydro will be holding an open house this fall to update the public on the biomass energy plan. So far the project has received $700,000 in grant money from the federal Green Municipal Fund, a program of the Canadian Federation of Municipalities.
Co-ordinators hope to get memorandums of agreement in place with specific buildings that will receive heat from the boiler by early next year.
