The Northern Forest Center has helped install more than 120 pellet boilers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York through “Model Neighborhood” projects. Working with local partners and leading pellet boiler manufacturers and pellet distributors, we’ve created dense clusters of homes and businesses that heat with efficient wood pellet boilers. The latest installations at the Monadnock Congregational Church in Colebrook, NH and Burke Mountain Academy in East Burke, VT will help establish wood pellet boilers as trusted, proven heating systems used by friends and neighbors, so that other home and business owners will see wood pellet boilers as a good option for their own heating needs and for their local economy.

And it’s working. In just over four years, theses 120 homes and businesses have generated nearly $4 million in total economic impact for our region’s economy and reduced net carbon dioxide in the atmosphere by 5,550 tons.
