A new biomass heat installation at Sisters High School has now been officially dedicated. In his swing through Central Oregon, Governor John Kitzhaber was at the ceremony yesterday afternoon. He spoke to a mixed audience of students, teachers, parents and the public and called the project a triple, bottom-line win.

In addition to maintaining the health of the surrounding forests, the boiler is expected to save the District between $35,000 and $65,000 per year in fuel costs. It also brings new jobs to the community.  The price tag of the project was around $350,000, and the District expects it to pay for itself in about six years.
