Here’s a great souvenir of our hard-working folks making sure the Alliance for Green Heat event in D.C. is a safe one. In the photo: CSIA Education Director Ashley Eldridge; CSIA President John Pilger; Steve Rea of Industrial Chimney Company; Joshua Kelley of Magic Broom Chimney Sweeps in Waldorf, MD; and Jerry Neal of Sugarloaf Chimney Restoration in Barnesville, MD. Great job, everyone. The Wood Stove Decathlon gets underway today.
From the Alliance for Green Heat Facebook page:
The Alliance for Green Heat is committed to:
• Promoting renewable, ultra-low carbon heating fuel
• Securing and promoting tax credits and other incentives for heating with wood
• Strengthening emissions and efficiency standards in wood and pellet stoves
• Promoting sustainable forestry practices in sourcing biomass for heating fuel.
• Keeping energy dollars in the U.S. economy and creating local, green jobs.
The Alliance for Green Heat works with environmental and forest organizations, air quality experts, the wood and pellet stove industry and others in the wood burning community.
The Alliance for Green Heat educates the public, the media, and local, state and national policymakers about the potential of wood and pellet heat and its applications to low and middle income populations. The Alliance is a non-profit organization in the process of applying tax-exempt status.
We advocate efficient wood and pellet stoves for home heating needs as a solution to a variety of environmental issues.
