S&T to go geothermal

The University of Missouri Board of Curators in November approved a plan to replace S&T’s 65-year-old power plant with a new geothermal energy system.

Construction is expected to take five years. S&T’s current power plant, built in 1945, relies on coal and wood chips to provide steam-generated heat to most buildings on campus. The new system is expected to save $1.4 million in energy and operational costs annually — a figure that could grow to $2.8 million in future years — and cut carbon dioxide emissions by more than 25,000 tons per year.
