Weekly Highlights for Sept 19, 2016:
- Southeast Island School
District’s Thorne Bay School performed the construction/engineering checkout
for the three newly installed cordwood boilers that will heat the school and
greenhouse. This project was funded by a Renewable Energy Fund grant to SE
Island School District for biomass boilers in schools throughout the district.
The Thorne Bay project will displace approximately 25,000 gallons of heating
fuel. The system should be operational within the next few weeks. Other
schools included in the cordwood boiler design and construction grant include
Hollis, Naukati, Coffman Cove, and Whale Pass.
