Fairbanks, DNR Building off Sportsman’s Way across from Fred Meyers.

Presenters: Tom Zimmerman of Universal Welding and Jim Gibertoni from Aaron Plumbing and Heating Company.

Topic: Our presenters will be discussing the new Pelco pellet/coal fired boiler facility in North Pole which utilizes a dual fuel capability.  These gentlemen will present on their installation, management and operations of the Pelco unit, and how they are working hard to ensure low emissions and potentially creating a 'Pelco in a box' type unit for distribution into other communities.
