Value #5: Make energy not trash
Our clean burning, on site cogeneration plant was decades ahead of its time,
Wood scrap that can't be used to make furniture is ground up, and along with our sawdust, is used to fire our clean-burning co-generation plant. The energy produced is used year-round to blow warm air for our finishing system. In the summer it provides us with about 10% of our electricity. In the winter it provides 100% of our heat. No fossil fuels have ever been used for heat at Pompanoosuc Mills.
