It’s Geo-dude: De Blasio wants to expand geothermal heating and cooling in NYC

Sniffing out new renewable energy sources for New York City like a determined bloodhound, Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke Wednesday about implementing more geothermal heating and cooling systems to replace fuel oil and natural gas in buildings.

New York City has a few geothermal sites that fuel public buildings throughout the city, including a fire station in Brownsville, Brooklyn and at a school on Staten Island. De Blasio said the plan is really just to expand these sites as much as possible to the rest of the city’s infrastructure.
