Some Vermont schools and housing groups have received a total of more than $900,000 in state grant money to develop cleaner, renewable biomass heat.

The Rutland Herald reports the state’s Clean Energy Development Fund on Monday handed out money to 16 projects to support wood pellet infrastructure.

Wood pellets are a heating fuel used instead of traditional firewood. They’re burned in efficient, cleaner-burning stoves. State officials say the program was created partly because of the growing number of solar project proposals.

The Rutland Housing Authority’s Hickory Street public housing project received $50,000 to help install pellet-fueled heating. A project at the Applegate Apartments in Bennington also received $50,000. Projects in Brattleboro, Montpelier and Barre also received money.
