Energy Grants for Eastern Oregon

Today we're sharing an article from Sustainable Business Oregon. The story reports that the Oregon Department of Energy and U.S. Forest Service have provided six grants to six small wood energy project operators in Eastern Oregon. The grants are a part of the Wood Energy Cluster Pilot project launched by the state last year, and include:
  • $50,000 to the Oregon Military Department for biomass district heating for the Umatilla Training Center;
  • $47,700 to Harney Community Energy for a possible thermal energy service company in Burns;
  • $30,000 to the Mt. Bachelor Resort for a central biomass heating system technical and economic analysis;
  • $16,000 to the Grant County Wood Energy Cluster for energy improvement studies at two elementary schools and the county's jail;
  • $15,000 to the Sisters Airport to study the feasibility of installing a biomass boiler; and
  • $9,300 to Wallowa Resources Community Solutions for a biomass district energy study.
