  • Turning up the Biomass Heat, 23 May 2011 by Biomass Power and Thermal: "Vermont has rich wood resources and the opportunity for further development of that local fuel and its local biomass equipment manufacturing."
    • "Thus, the governor has requested the state develop and implement incentives to spur a switch from oil to wood pellet heat in residential and commercial applications."
    • "The state already provides direct financial incentives to consumers for high-efficiency fossil fuel stoves, says George Twigg, deputy policy director for Vermont Energy Investment Corp., which runs Efficiency Vermont, and this program will be similar, although the specific amount has yet to be determined."
    • "The wood pellet incentives will essentially be a rebate paid by Efficiency Vermont for purchasing wood pellet-burning equipment."[1]
  • Montpelier building biomass district energy system, 8 February 2011 by Biomass Power and Thermal Magazine: "With the help of an $8 million Recovery Act grant, Vermont’s capital city will install a 41 MMBtu combined-heat and-power biomass district energy system that will provide heat to the statehouse and up to 175 other public and private buildings downtown, as well as 1.8 million kilowatt hours of electricity to the grid."
    • "Locally sourced wood chips will fuel the plant. In terms of how much a system like this would require, Sherman said it’s a moving target dependent on what the final build-out of the system is, but it will not be a huge volume—somewhere from 10,000 to 15,000 green tons annually."[2]
