Admin Building Biofuel Project
In 2008, Camrose County initiated a project to heat the County Administration Building with a new, sustainable, alternative green energy. Since 2011 the system now supplies sustainable heating energy from a renewable willow tree plantation, and simultaneously provides a use for waste water from a sewage lagoon.

"... the visionary leadership at Camrose County is remarkable and their dedication to utilize the willow from the Ohaton plantation is an example of how we can utilize environmentally sustainable and renewable resources to complement our efficient use of energy from fossil fuels to the benefit of the local community."
