Wood Energy

Wood is abundant in New Hampshire. After all, we are 84% forested. Any woodlot has a mix of tree species, sizes and shapes--all factors deciding how a harvested tree is used. Trees and parts of trees that can't be sawn into one of many kinds of lumber products often is burned for thermal (heat) or electrical energy. Homeowners are familiar with the cozy warmth from their woodstove, but wood is a local source of renewable energy used for commercial power production and institutional thermal heat and/or power (combined heat and power).
