Renewables are being threatened with 2 NH House Bills

Time is running short. The NH House Energy Committee is acting on 2 bills which will be a huge setback for renewable base businesses and their (future) customers. It is BIG MISTAKE to pull NH out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and repealing the Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS). Please write your house representative and your Senator—especially Andy Sanborn who represents Peterborough and is a sponsor of HB 543….

Precision Dry Wood Chips (PDCs) – Delivered!

Our truck was filled with 15 tons of freshly made Froling Energy PDCs (60 yards) and was then driven from Peterborough to Charlestown, NH. Confidently, we hooked up our hose to the pipe for Fuel Bin #1. In a matter of minutes, the chips were transferred. Success! This all started last year when we installed about a dozen biomass boilers capable of reaching one half million (500,000) BTUs or more. These boilers have been engineered to accommodate burning either wood…

Governor Maggie Hassan checks out Froling Energy at NH Energy Summit

The Froling Energy team had a very interesting morning at the NH Energy Summit listening to speakers with a variety of backgrounds in energy—from propane and natural gas to wind power and electric companies.

The NHPUC Commercial Pellet Boiler Rebate Program CONTINUES!

Just two short months ago, in late December 2013, the NHPUC opened up a Rebate Program that significantly contributes towards the cost of Commercial Pellet Boiler installations. The contribution amount is 30% of the project cost, up to $50,000 maximum. As of this writing nearly 85% of the original funds are gone—or more correctly, reserved for projects. This is a Great Success for the NHPUC! My calculations show that this means…
