Allerton Park Geothermal_Funding Award and Acceptance
Posted by Sarthak Prasad on June 30, 2013
This project seeks to significantly reduce Allerton Park’s net energy usage while, at the same time, promoting clean, renewable energy. This will be done by converting the facility’s most inefficient and outdated heating and cooling system, located within the Gatehouse building, to geothermal heating and cooling. As a U of I entity, Allerton Park strives to lead the way in upholding the University’s climate commitment by proactively encouraging sound and sustainable building principles. As a climate leader, Allerton Park is committed to encouraging alternative energy initiatives, improving energy efficiency, and engaging students in supporting alternative sources of energy.
