Montpelier And The Wood Chip Debate

Print More

The city of Montpelier hopes to heat and help power 176 buildings, including the State Capitol, with wood chips. The project has been in the works for close to 15 years, but recently got a jumpstart with $8 million in federal stimulus funds.

VPR’s Jane Lindholm talks with Montpelier City Manager Bill Fraser and Chris Recchia, the Executive Director of the Biomass Energy Resource Center, based in Montpelier about the specifics of the project, and whether or not the city could serve as a model for other biomass projects across the country.
