Largest Geothermal project in US

15 mar 2012: One of my very best friends from the 1970s has been a Professor at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana for a long time, and I was very pleased to read this report about his University. BSU is installing a comprehensive ground source heat pump system - not for one building but for the entire campus. 3,600 boreholes are being drilled, with a network of pipes, of over 1,000 miles! These will provide cooling in summer - dumping heat underground - and heating in winter. This will make it possible to remove the old boilers from their present district heating system, saving an estimated 85,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually.
 see the report in EcoGeek.com and on the Ball State Uni website.
