Biomass Boiler Project

Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School


Project Summary

  • Estimated cost $2,000,000

  • Grant awarded from the Department of Conservation $750,000. Net cost $1,250,000

  • Project eligible to be funded via Qualified School Construction Bonds (QSCB) because of the district’s free/reduced lunch percentages

    • These bonds require a referendum vote

    • These are zero interest bonds - resulting in a $600,000 savings to the district over the life of the bond


Project Summary

  • Will reduce the amount of fuel oil consumed by 88,500 gallons

  • Net savings first year $128,000

  • Savings will increase as cost of fuel oil increases

  • Reduces our dependence on foreign oil

  • Uses a locally grown, and manufactured project (wood chips)

  • Results in significant beneficial impact on the environment


Why a referendum vote?

  • This project qualifies to be financed by Qualified School Construction Bonds (QSCB) due to the districts high percentage of free/reduced lunch students

    • These are zero interest bonds

    • A referendum vote is required

    • There is a limited amount of funds available so we need to move quickly to secure financing

  • Our goal is to get the boiler on-line early in the heating season (January 1, 2011) so that we can save on oil costs.
