News Summary

The City of Duluth has been awarded a grant from the US Department of Energy to explore harnessing waste heat from the Western Lake Superior Sanitary District to heat the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Duluth. This would be the first system in the US to recover waste heat from the discharge at the conclusion of the wastewater treatment process to provide heating to buildings.

Proud partner to the City of Duluth, Ecolibrium3, and Western Lake Superior Sanitary District, Ever-Green Energy will study the technical feasibility and financing of developing a low-carbon, rate-stable, geothermal energy system.

We are thrilled to see the City of Duluth awarded the opportunity to explore implementing cutting-edge district energy geothermal in the Lincoln Park community.
