New bus garage will include up-to-date geothermal heating

The new South Central Transit bus garage undergoing final touches on East Main Street will include geothermal heating to keep heating costs as low as possible.

“It (the garage) has got the nicest heating system in town,” said construction manager Brandon Nadeau of Enterprise Sales, the project’s general contractor. Enterprise installed a geothermal heating system, where on-site wells are dug to tap the earth’s natural heat output.
