    What would you do if you had a cottage with no power?

    Why not follow the Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä's example and start up a bioenergy company!

    Our next event on Tuesday, Feb. 26th will tell the story of Volter. Come and learn how, after struggling to get power for his summer home, the current Prime Minister of Finland founded a bioenergy company and how year-round, independent heat and power production can be done from the consumer end.
