In honor of National Bioenergy Day, Greenwood Clean Energy opened the doors of its Development and Innovation Center this week to local residents and lawmakers inviting them to come and learn more about an industry that provides significant environmental, energy, economic and social benefits. Each Greenwood wood boiler:
- Delivers industry-leading low emission performance,
- Produces domestic energy from local low-value timber,
- Saves homeowners 80% on their annual home heating bills, and
- Stimulates the local economy through jobs, savings, and renewable resource utilization.
Greenwood’s events in Redmond, WA and Burdett, NY were two of the marquee events from across the US and Canada held to raise awareness about the positive impact of bioenergy.
Bioenergy refers to energy – often space heat or electricity – that is produced from wood and other organic materials. In 2013, approximately 23% of all renewable energy consumed was from wood (EIA, 2013) – more than wind and solar combined and second only to hydroelectric energy.
“Bioenergy helps keep forests, the forest products industry, and most importantly, our forest communities healthy and strong,” said Michael Kuehner, President/CEO of Greenwood Clean Energy. “Our installers are local residents and our appliances generate clean energy from native materials that would otherwise be discarded. We wanted to give people an opportunity to see what we do firsthand and learn more about this form of renewable energy.”
U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has continued to support bioenergy’s role in protecting the health of forests on federal lands, saying, "Renewable wood energy is part of the Obama Administration's energy strategy. The Forest Service works with its partners to support the development of wood energy projects that promote sound forest management, expand regional economies and create new rural jobs."
As the first and only residential log wood boiler that meets the strict Washington State emission standards, the Frontier CX is in a new class of smart appliances that represent the future of the wood-fired central heating industry. Homeowners now have a cost effective option to heat their home and hot water using a local, renewable resource.
