Geothermal cuts emissions and costs at these Minnesota public schools

Frank Jossi writes in Canary Media that geothermal is cutting costs and emissions in Minnesota.

The C3 Take
  • St. Paul’s public schools are turning to geothermal to comply with the city’s climate action plan.
  • Darcy Solutions, a Twin Cities startup, is leading the charge with its aquifer geothermal technology.
  • This system taps aquifers rather than the ground and requires far fewer wells than conventional ground-based systems, which makes it ideal for densely populated urban areas.
  • Darcy claims that its solution creates 70% less emissions and lower cooling costs than a traditional heating and cooling system.

“The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Belgium have been the primary users of geothermal aquifers, but Darcy aims to change that. Ed said the startup has expanded to Wisconsin and will now begin adding more states that have the right groundwater characteristics to work with its technology.”
