Lillooet Biomass Heating System

Download Case Study     Download Appendix

The Lillooet Community Biomass Energy Project (BEP) was a $705,000 capital investment to install a new pellet boiler and upgrade the Lillooet Recreation Centre (REC) heating system. The project involved replacing one of the older used propane boilers with a new 400 kW KOB pellet boiler. The new boiler supplies 80-85% of the heat demand for the entire REC. The project also saw upgrades done to the building heating system and the joining of the two separate heating systems. The pellet boiler is housed in a standalone container outside the building. There is also a 45 tonne pellet storage silo.
