Third Annual National Bioenergy Day Taking Place October 21st

Oct 19, 2015

October 21, 2015 marks the third annual National Bioenergy Day. On Wednesday organizations across the U.S. will host events in their communities to celebrate advancements and benefits of modern wood heating and other bioenergy sources.

Bioenergyday.com states that “in addition to serving as a domestic energy source, bioenergy is responsible for sustaining tens of thousands of jobs, many of them in rural communities where they are most needed. Bioenergy’s many stakeholders work closely together to keep American forests healthy and put organic byproducts like forest trimmings, industry byproducts and agricultural residuals to good use.”

In Vermont multiple sites, including South Main Apartments in Waterbury, VT and the Montpelier District Heating Plant in the state capital, will be open to the public to showcase a variety of modern wood heating options.
