LISBON, NH — The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced that it has awarded a $250,000 grant to DCI Sustainable Hardwood Furniture for a combined heat-and-power biomass boiler. Along with other contributions, the grant funds will be used to purchase and install the unit in the company’s Lisbon headquarters, with annual energy savings estimated to be $390,000.
Vermont State Director Anthony Linardos recently announced the grant award. “USDA’s Rural Energy for America Program helps businesses like DCI Sustainable Hardwood Furniture become more energy independent and reduce costs while supporting the renewable economy in New Hampshire,” he said. “Many rural small business owners need support to incorporate renewable energy and energy-efficiency technology into their operations.”
