Natural Gas

Grassroots organization has a plan to get us off natural gas

The Home Energy Efficiency Team, HEET, a women-led grassroots organization in Cambridge, Massachusetts, thinks geothermal micro districts are the key to ending our reliance on fossil fuels.

“HEET wants utilities to replace leaky infrastructure with ground-source heat pumps. The technology draws heat from a few hundred feet underground, where the earth remains a fairly constant 54 degrees or so, and uses it to heat and cool buildings. As more sections of gas-carrying pipe are replaced with this technology, it would create networks, which HEET calls GeoMicroDistricts, that serve ever-larger areas, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.”
