Oct. 20, 2016 - A residence building on the University of Northern British Columbia’s Prince George campus is using biomass to keep warm this winter.

The Neyoh residence is now connected to the university’s existing district energy system, which uses a pellet boiler. According to the university, the project has already resulted in a significant decrease in electricity and natural gas consumption.

Another residence and the UNBC Childcare Centre are both slated to be connected in 2017.
