SARANAC LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - A non-profit group is offering subsidies to help Adirondack residents and businesses switch to high-efficiency wood pellet heating systems.

The Northern Forest Center is holding information sessions June 8 in Saranac and June 9 in Saranac Lake to explain the Adirondack Model Neighborhood Wood Heat Initiative.

The program will subsidize wood pellet boiler installations for 20 homeowners in Saranac, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake and 15 non-residential buildings in Essex, Franklin and Clinton counties.

The Northern Forest Center’s renewable energy program is building the market for high-efficiency, low-emission wood pellet boilers in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York.

The “model” neighborhood concept creates a geographic concentration of pellet boiler users to help develop pellet delivery systems, installation and maintenance support, making it easier for others to switch to pellet heating.
