District Geothermal Study for Avangrid Co-Authored by Aztech, LaBella & TGEG
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY from Report
Pursuant to the current Joint Proposal, New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas and Electric (RG&E, and together with NYSEG, the Companies), subsidiaries of Avangrid, Inc., engaged LaBella Associates, Aztech Geothermal and The Grey Edge Group to perform a study on the feasibility of deploying geothermal district energy systems in the Companies’ service territory including identifying sites for potential district geothermal system pilot projects within Monroe County, Tompkins County, Chenango County, and Otsego County. For each potential pilot site, a group of buildings were selected, site geological conditions reviewed, a preliminary loop design was constructed, technical feasibility assessed plus a narrative was developed on the economic impact, technical feasibility, ownership options, and finally permitting & regulatory considerations, ownership options, and geology impacts. A narrative was also developed establishing a framework for future identification and selection of locations for district geothermal systems.
