   NH Wood Energy Council Recognizes LRH
Modern Wood Heating Installation

L to R - Dick Blanchard, Boiler Plant Director
David Van Houten, NH Wood Energy Council
Henri Wante, Director of Facilities Management
The NH Wood Energy Council recently recognized Littleton Regional Healthcare (LRH) for their installation of an advanced wood pellet boiler at their facility in Littleton, NH.

DHI of Colebrook, NH and Messersmith Mfg., Inc. of Bark River, MI installed the boiler(s) to switch from heating oil (or other fossil fuel) to locally sourced wood fuels, thereby reducing heating costs and using a renewable, low carbon fuel alternative.

As boilers tend to be hidden away from public view, the handsome locally made wood plaque will help visitors to the facility to understand the commitment that LRH has made to modern wood heating technology and sustainable energy.

The NH Wood Energy Council is a public-private education and technical assistance initiative to promote advanced wood heating, and supported by the USDA Forest Service. It is coordinated by North Country Resource Conservation & Development Council. Visit NHWEC at
