Wood Biomass at the Lillooet Recreation Centre

Wood Biomass at the Lillooet Recreation Centre

The District of Lillooet in June 1st, 2011 will be commissioning their Community Biomass Energy Project using a 400kW Pyrot Boiler to heat their Recreation/Aquatic Centre facility that is in the heart of the town. Duane Lawrence the Director of Recreation attended our 2010 Open House to see exactly what a containerized wood biomass heat plant was all about and if it would help them reduce their carbon emissions and reduce their costly propane bill. Through the UBCM (Union of British Columbia Municipalities) Gas Tax Agreement Strategic Priorities Fund (GSPF) and Innovations Fund (IF) were able to secure $467,000 towards the project. With a payback of 3.5 years it makes good economic sense for the townspeople. Lillooet is the first town in BC to use a high efficient commercial wood biomass boiler to heat a REC Centre in BC. Way to go Lillooet!
