A project to help heat Vermont state offices and a number of private buildings in downtown Montpelier with a new biomass system is getting a $1.75 million boost with a federal grant and loan.

The nearly $20 million project will be built on the site of the existing state heating plant not far from the Statehouse and expand the area it heats to other parts of the community.

The plant is designed to reduce toxic air emissions in downtown Montpelier by as much as 11 tons per year and save 150,000 gallons of oil a year. It is expected to save the state $200,000 a year in heating costs.
