The Biomass Facility saved Rockingham County taxpayers over $500,000 in energy costs in 2014. Burning local wood chips to provide steam for heat, hot water, laundry and kitchen processes at the Nursing Home/Assisted Living Facility and Jail, the Biomass Facility is projected to displace approximately 245,000 gallons of fuel oil consumption with 4,000 tons of wood chips. Rockingham County has procured a five year contract with a chip supplier with only slight annual price increases.
Rockingham County received a $1.97 million grant which covered approximately half the cost of the project. Additionally, a $200,000 grant was obtained from the North Country Conservation and Development Area Inc. through the United States Forest Service.

Rockingham County received a deficiency free rating for its water system at the Rockingham County Complex. For more information, please see the letter from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.
