Orono company converts former air force base facility to biomass By Jen Lynds Bangor Daily News (ME) October 4, 2013LIMESTONE, Maine - Officials at the former Loring Air Force Base are hoping that a biomass conversion at one building at the facility will lead to significant savings and reduce the base’s carbon footprint.
Orono-based Pelletco converted the Non-Commissioned Officer’s club, known as Club 42, from oil to biomass by installing a HeatPod in the building, which is connected directly to the club’s existing heat distribution system. Pelletco provides heat to the facility, operates the unit and bills only for the heat used. There is no upfront or capital cost to Loring or the tenants for the transition from fossil fuels to biomass.
Since the base’s closure in 1994, the old officer’s club has hosted weddings, conferences, retreats and other special events.
