Burning local wood chips to provide steam for heat, hot water, laundry and kitchen processes at the Rockingham County Long Term Care Campus, and Jail/House of Corrections.

Rockingham County received a $1.97 million grant, covering approximately half the cost of the project. Additionally, a $200,000 grant was obtained from the North Country Conservation and Development Area Inc. through the United States Forest Service.

The Rockingham County Biomass Facility is projected to displace approximately 245,000 gallons of fuel oil consumption with 4,000 tons of wood chips. The savings to Rockingham County will be in excess of approximately $400,000 per year, fluctuating with the price of oil. We have procured a five year contract with a chip supplier with only slight annual price increases.   Click here for more information
