Ruru Specialist School embraces wood energy system
The success of wood energy systems in Southland is convincing more businesses and schools to choose environmentally-friendly biomass heating options.
One of the latest schools to be reaping the benefits in a switch to Biomass is Ruru Specialist School, which had a wood energy boiler installed mid last year and has not looked back since.
Ruru Specialist School principal Erin Cairns said there were many factors that influenced their decision to change to the biomass system.
“It was the cleanest and greenest option, and eased any health and safety concerns we had for our students, community and the environment....” Cairns said.
