Southern Vermont Modern Wood Pellet Heating Forum


Monday, November 16, 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Marlboro College Graduate Center, 28 Vernon St.  Brattleboro

Free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served. 

Vendors will be available to talk from 5:00 – 5:30 and after 7:30

This forum will focus on central wood pellet heating technology for residential and commercial settings.  This technology is highly efficient and more affordable than ever thanks to new incentives in Vermont.  A modern wood pellet boiler can completely replace a conventional boiler for a fraction of the annual heating cost.  And, there are no heavy pellet bags to haul.  Central pellet boilers are fed automatically from a hopper, and the hopper is filled with pellets by a delivery truck.  Every year a percentage of conventional boilers will fail reaching the end of their service life.   Anticipating such an eventuality puts all in a position to make prudent decisions about your home and/or commercial heating goals.
