The Downtown Renewable Energy System in Prince George has gained national attention.

It is being featured on the cover of Canadian Biomass Magazine, which focuses on the country’s biomass, bioenergy, and bio-products markets.

Back in May, city crews began attaching new civic facilities to the renewable energy system.

The system heats 11 downtown buildings using water heated with sawmill residue at Lakeland Mills. Locations include City Hall, the Four Seasons Pool, and the Public Library.

According to the city, by displacing the consumption of natural gas for heating, the system has reduced the City’s annual greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 2200 tonnes annually.
