Borealis Wood Power Corp.

Wood Cogeneration for Rural Communities - Environmental

Small rural communities or work camps are ideal applications for the Borealis wood power plant. Its application fit is best when the heat can be used to support a micro-heating-network for 25 homes or fewer in conjunction with a community centre as base load. Power needs must exceed the 45 kWh or it can be sold to the grid.

Ideal applications are where wood chip sourcing is economical due to local forests and the facility is dependent on more expensive diesel or other energy supply.  This system will lower this dependency at lower costs.  Payback is dependent on the operation, the cost of wood chips and other optional sources of electricity.
