GOVERNOR CUOMO LAUNCHES RENEWABLE HEAT NY TO BUILD MARKET FOR HIGH-EFFICIENCY, LOW-EMISSIONS WOOD-FIRED HEATING SYSTEMS

July 29, 2014

Read this exciting press release from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo regarding the announcement of the Renewable Heat NY initiative…

$27 Million will Help for More Efficient and Cleaner Technology, Encourage Sustainable Forestry, and Train Installers for Growing Industry

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today launched Renewable Heat NY, a $27 million initiative aimed at building a sustainable, high-efficiency, low-emissions wood heating sector in New York. Renewable Heat NY will also help develop more clean technology manufacturing based in New York, a skilled installer base, and sustainably harvested wood fuels from state forests—supporting economic development while preserving the environment.

“The wood-fired heating industry is an important source of energy in Upstate New York, and by launching Renewable Heat NY we are helping to shape this growing sector with a focus on clean, sustainable, and highly-efficient practices,” Governor Cuomo said. “This initiative is the most comprehensive in the nation, and I am confident that it will support the continued evolution of a vibrant wood heating sector in rural areas of the state.”

Renewable Heat NY promotes the highest efficiency class of wood-fired heating technologies in the nation, and is expected to make New York State a national leader in developing this low-emissions industry. Environmental and public health benefits, along with a reduction in fossil-fuel use, an increase in sustainable forestry, and the expansion of the wood pellet and equipment supply chains, will benefit communities across the state.

The initiative was officially launched today in Troy at Evoworld Inc., a manufacturer of high-efficiency wood pellet boilers. Also participating in the event were Vincent’s Heating and Fuel Service of Herkimer County, a woman-owned company that installs pellet boilers, manufactures pellet storage containers and delivers pellets, Econoburn of Chautauqua County, a manufacturer of advanced cordwood boilers, and the New York Biomass Energy Alliance.

Have a backup for your home heating? These days you need one.

It’s never too late to ensure your own homeland security with Econoburn.

Propane TanksPeople are freaking out.  Ohio declares an energy emergency due to a shortage of propane gas used to fuel furnaces this winter in millions of homes across half a dozen states in the Midwest and North.  Also 1 million businesses that face a similar problem during a frigid, grueling winter that still has three months to go.

Ohio Governor John R. Kasich followed the lead of officials in 17 U.S. states who declared energy emergencies and loosened rules for propane transportation from other states that are effective until the end of January.

Emergency measures to expedite the delivery of the gas from other states mean long truck drives over snow and ice and building homeowner anxiety of facing single digit temperatures with no heat.  For them, global warming has been temporarily suspended. Continue reading
