Prior to 2008 Cashmere High School was heated by two coal fired boilers. These boilers had reached the end of their economic life and the schools discharge consent for coal firing was soon to expire. Cashmere High School needed to seek a clean heating alternative. Wood pellet boilers were selected by the school as being the best alternative to coal and a pair of wood pellet boilers were installed in 2008. This monitoring report contains data collected from the first year of the boilers operation.
