Middlesex College Installs Geothermal System

Paul Nastu

Middlesex Community College has flipped the switch on a new geothermal project on the Bedford campus.

Geothermal technology has replaced the HVAC  equipment in Trustees’ House, a three-story, 9,800-square-foot building on the Bedford campus. Coneco Energy was the contractor on the project.

In addition to a 2008 federal grant, Middlesex has been awarded a $75,000 state grant from the Department of Energy Resources.

The $325,000 project has an estimated annual savings of $6,524 and 5,392 therms.

Project details include:

  • a minimum of 6 or 7 closed loop wells to provide almost 100% of heating and cooling HDPE loop piping
  • three (3) Water Furnace water to air heat pumps
  • expansion tank, air separator, duty-standby pumps
  • energy metering / monitoring system with web access.
