Upgrading your school’s heating system with wood pellet heat is environmentally friendly and can reduce your carbon footprint while using a locally sourced renewable fuel.
Schools are an investment in our children. And, we want to help you teach a bigger picture of environmental responsibility.
We can put you in touch with schools who have made the transition. And, we understand the process because we’ve helped others through it before. You can have a completely hands-off heating system that is as easy as fossil fuel heat. That means, you can focus on what really matters for your students.
Furthermore, you would be doing the responsible thing by reducing your carbon footprint by 86%. And, the EPA has ruled that wood pellets are a carbon-neutral heat source. That’s an important lesson. Some states (like Maine) even require schools to thoroughly explore wood pellet heat before other fuels when replacing a heating system. Regardless of requirements, supporting local economies and fostering good forest stewardship is the right thing to do.
"Thanks to our MESys pellet boilers, we've started the process to go green and we've saved on fuel cost."Ron D. of Crescent Park Elementary School in Bethel, Maine speaking about why he pursued and they adopted a wood pellet heating system to displace 80% of the school's oil usage.

“ANSON — Students here will no longer sit in classrooms that are warmed by heating oil. The school district is instead turning to an abundant Maine resource: wood. The district’s four schools are converting from oil-fueled boilers to wood-pellet ones, for a minimum net savings each year of $70,000, Superintendent Ken Coville said. The combined project will cut our facility heating costs about in half,” Coville said. “At the same time, it eliminates the use of approximately 65,000 gallons a year of oil, which reduces, ultimately, in a small way, the country’s dependence on foreign oil…”
