The Yukon village of Teslin has become a world-leading model in biomass heating, with more than 900 people from around the globe having visited to learn about the facilities.

Once a month, and even up to once a week in the summer, the Teslin Tlingit Council leads tours of its system, where biomass boilers heat ten of the community's major buildings. It went into operation almost a year ago, and has been attracting visitors like Fred Behrens ever since.
