The Town of Windsor is proposing to use American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds provided by the Department of Energy to install a 14 ton vertical closed-loop ground source heat pump system in the Northwest Park Nature Center. This project will require 4 to 5 bore holes which will be drilled to a depth of 525 feet. The project will be used as a teaching aide for at least 80 school districts with approximately 6,000 students that visit the park annually. The nature center will also serve as a model of market-ready to distribute renewable energy technologies.
