A neighborhood in Framingham, Massachusetts will be the first in the country with a networked geothermal system, through a pilot program run by Eversource Energy. The pilot is expected to include 29 homes, five commercial buildings, and 10 apartment buildings. If it proves cost-effective, the approach could be replicated elsewhere to provide more communities with clean, renewable heating and cooling.

To learn more about how to power our homes and buildings with clean, renewable energy, see our report Electric Buildings: How to repower where we live, work and learn with clean energy.
