Energy: Geothermal

  • Eliminates 80,000 tons of carbon emissions annually, cuts energy costs by an estimated $2 million, reduces approximately half of the current campus carbon footprint, eliminates four coal fired boilers built in the 1950's and heast and cools more than 40 buildings over the 660 acre campus.
  • Phase one included a new 6,000 SF Energy Center building with a full basement.
