October 28, 2013, Telkwa, B.C. – A community biomass project
in the small village of Telkwa, B.C. is about to come online thanks to support
from the federal government.

The village of approximately 1,400 residents, located 350km
west of Prince George, have installed the wood-bioenergy system thanks to
$400,000 in gas tax funding from the federal government. Expected to come
online this fall, the system will provide heat for the municipal building,
elementary school, as well as a handful of homes and businesses.

The system will include a 300 kW chip boiler that will be
housed in the municipal office space. The chips will come from mountain pine
beetle killed wood found through the Telkwa region.
