Grants for wood chip boilers

Since 2005, the Orne council has supported the development of wood chip boilers. As part of the policy to promote renewable energies, this measure is designed to:

  • encourage the use of a local, renewable fuel that is carbon-neutral 
  • help consolidate the local economy, while reducing the need to transport fuels
  • help to maintain and develop the pasturelands typical of our department (hedgerows are a key factor in our landscape and an important refuge for many animal and plant species).
