- Advancing Community-Scale Wood Energy in Plumas County
- The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide $937,075 in funding for the purchase and installation of equipment to support the utilization of wood chips for generating heat at the Quincy Junior Senior High School. Specific activities would include the replacement of an existing oil-fired boiler at the Quincy Junior Senior High School with a new biomass heating system rated at 1,365 MBH, which would utilize approximately 240 tons of wood chips per year. The new biomass heating system would be located at the same site as the existing oil-fired boiler and it would serve the same purpose and provide approximately the same heating capacity as the existing boiler. The project would also involve the purchase and installation of permanent covered storage sheds to store wood chips at the existing Crescent Mills Wood Utilization Campus, which is owned by the Sierra Institute for Community and Environment and zoned for heavy industrial use. These sheds would be accessory to existing uses at campus and would be a total of approximately 50 feet by 200 feet in size. It also involves the purchase of a small portable wood chip truck dumper for use at the existing Crescent Mills Wood Utilization Campus and other appropriate locations. The wood chip truck dumper would also be accessory to the existing uses and would be portable such that it would not require permanent installation at the site.
