– New Hampshire's Grafton County in October broke ground in North Haverhill on a new wood-fired biomass power plant that will heat the county complex, The Caledonian-Record reported on Oct. 17.
The facility is expected to reduce the need for 90,000 gallons of heating oil a year, according to the news item, as reported by The Associated Press the same day.
A U.S. Department of Energy grant and left over funds from a jail bond are helping meet the US$2.7 million cost of the project.
County Commissioner Michael Cryans said the plant would create sustainable jobs for the region's loggers in supplying wood-biomass.
