Two videos explain the environmental and economic benefits of a wood-powered plant

[MANCHESTER, NH]- Heartwood Media, a Manchester, NH video production company recently produced two videos for Public Service of New Hampshire about their new wood-fired power plant at Schiller Station in Portsmouth, NH.

PSNH called on long time collaborators Heartwood Media to help explain the benefits of using wood as a fuel. Heartwood created two videos – an overview that explains the economic and environmental benefits, and a second video that explains how the plant works. The videos feature scenic vistas, aerial footage of woodlands throughout New Hampshire and footage of loggers at work. Heartwood used 3D animation to illustrate the wood-burning technology at the plant.

These videos recently won a Silver Telly at the 28th annual Telly Awards.

“People have used wood as a fuel for centuries,” said Chris Conroy, Creative Director of Heartwood Media. “It was very interesting to explain how PSNH is combining this very old fuel with sophisticated technology to produce electricity.”

Both videos are available at Heartwood’s online portfolio:
