Prairie Village geothermal project gets another $70,000 in grant funding
The geothermal heating and cooling system Prairie Village installed at its municipal complex was projected to save the city around $50,000 in energy and maintenance costs each year.
Now, it’s put another $70,000 in city accounts.
The city recently got word that it would receive an additional $70,000 in grant funding for the geothermal system, which uses a series of 400-feet-deep wells to store and transfer heat. The energy stored and exchanged in the wells is used control the temperature of city buildings.
Combined with an original $250,000 in grant funding, the total amount of renewable energy grant funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for the project now totals $320,000. Prairie Village also received another energy efficiency grant of $150,000 and $12,000 in utility rebates, bringing the total grant and rebate funding to $482,000.
The geothermal system, completed in fall 2011, was part of a $1.29 million energy efficiency project.
