Media Release - Mossburn School chooses the cleaner wood energy option

Mossburn School has joined the growing number of southern schools converting to clean burning, efficient wood energy.

When considering automating the coal feed system to the boiler the Mossburn School Board looked into other heating options, it was decided that the small extra expense of switching to wood pellet heating was the best option.

Mossburn School Principal, Rachel Peters said that when they switched over to biomass wood pellets the whole system was upgraded and arrived in a shipping container that became the new boiler room.

“The boiler is really fantastic in that it adjusts to the outside heat, so if it’s getting hotter during the day the boiler stops giving out as much heat which means we’re not wasting any energy.”

“We feel really good that we’re doing the right thing environmentally in terms of our heating systems.”
