HILLSVILLE — An engineering study shows that St. Paul School in Carroll County might be able to save thousands of dollars a year by heating with “biomass” instead of oil.
The biomass in this case would be sawdust pressed into pellets.
A report by Langseth Engineering on both St. Paul and Hillsville Elementary schools was presented to the Carroll County School Board at its Jan. 7 meeting.
