The Department of Energy is proposing to provide $1,000,000 in State Energy Program American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding to the University of Cincinnati to convert the East Campus Powerhouse Boilers #3 and #4 from burning coal only to burning a variable mixture of wood chips and coal. The project would consist of converting the existing boilers to have wood-firing capability, and to install a wood chip delivery system to carry the wood fuel to the boilers.
