September 3, 2014, Prince George, B.C. – The University of
Northern British Columbia is proceeding with its plan to expand its campus
bioenergy system thanks to a $1.1 million grant from the B.C. Government.

 

According to a report in the Nelson Daily, the funding has
been granted to the university to help cover the cost of the expansion of the
bioenergy system to student residences and a daycare facility.

 

Advertisment

As reported by Canadian Biomass Magazine in June, the move
will reduce the need for natural gas and electricity usage at the student
residences, located southeast of the Nexterra system. The pellet boiler will
also be moved to the Nexterra system building as part of the project, as the
pellet boiler currently has the additional capacity needed for the residences to be added to the system.

 

The overall cost of the project is $2.2 million. The Omineca
Beetle Action Coalition and TransCanada Corporation have joined the province as
funding partners for the expansion.
