Preliminary Engineering Assessment
you are located in the 6-state region of Nevada,
Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming or North Dakota, the Fuels
for Schools Program Coordinator in your state can assist you with a sponsored
Pre-Feasibility Assessment. See state
links below. If not in these states, click here
- Fill out a
Pre-Feasibility Assessment Form (see links below) and return to your
State’s Program Coordinator. This
form requires some basic information about your facility’s size, current
heating and distribution system, and annual fuel usage.
- The State
Coordinator will review the form and examine the potential of a biomass
conversion at your facility “at quick glance.” This will determine whether
your facility warrants a closer look with a Preliminary Engineering
- If this
Assessment is warranted, your facility will receive an “engineer for a
day” visit from a contractor we’ve hired to conduct the assessment.
- Free of charge
and with no obligation from you, the engineer will survey your facility
and heating system and prepare a written report which will detail the
technical and economic feasibility of integrating a biomass boiler system including
estimated construction costs and projected fuel costs savings.
- Based on the
results of this Preliminary Engineering Assessment, your facility may
appear a good candidate for a biomass boiler installation. The next step would be to work with an
architectural and engineering firm to plan and design your system.
