Community Benefits

Community Energy – Benefits to the Community

Communities benefit from community energy systems in a number of ways:

- Improved air quality
- Green House Gas displacement
- Fossil fuel import displacement
- Alternate energy source
- Potential non-taxable, non tax source of municipal revenue
- Value-added use of wood “waste”
- Local processing of local resources
- Great opportunity for municipalities to meet environmental requirements established by higher levels of governments.
- Further GHG reduction by eliminating trucking of wood “waste” to distant users.
