Feds won't fund new energy project
from Northern News Services
The federal government has shot down a request from city hall for up to $12.5 million in funding for a smaller scale district energy system to heat city-owned facilities only. This is just the latest bad news to add to a long list of troubles the city has had trying to get some type of district energy system off the ground, starting with plans to borrow up to $49 million toward a district energy plan partly powered with geothermal heat from Con Mine, which voters rejected in a referendum in March 2011.
