A first nation in northern Quebec that has used biomass district heating to cost-effectively heat commercial and residential homes in their village since 1993, is undergoing a much-needed boiler modernization project.
The Oujé-Bougoumou Cree Nation is spending a $2.7-million investment from the federal government to replace its nearly 30-year-old biomass boilers.
Freddy Bosum, director of public works for the Oujé-Bougoumou Cree Nation who oversees the district heating project, said in an email the current boilers were in need of replacement.
