Wood chips to heat school district buildings

December 01, 2009 |

An alternative energy plant for the Hartford Central School District in Hartford, N.Y., will be a first for the state's public school systems. Designed by Albany, N.Y.-based CSArch Architecture/Construction Management, the $1.9 million plant will provide heat and hot water to the district's elementary and high school complex, as well as to an adjacent technical school. The plant will be fueled by wood chips from local farmers and use around 1,600 tons of chips per year.
