The Wild Center is moving towards 100 percent heating with renewable energy using a combination of biofuels and solar. The highly efficient wood pellet boiler integrated with a solar tube hot water system will supply much of the hot water required to heat the 54,000-square-foot facility in Tupper Lake.  The new system made in part by Advanced Climate Technologies is monitored by Clarkson University and designed to be copied by other large facilities in the Adirondacks. 

The boiler system represents the first highly efficient, commercial-sized, gasification wood-pellet boiler of its kind and size manufactured and installed in New York State.  The solar hot water tube collection system will be the first of its kind used in a commercial application in the Adirondack region. 

A complete FAQ that will answer your questions about how a system like this could be used in other buildings is available.
