On Friday October 28th, over 100 of our high school and middle school students received a real life lesson on geothermal energy heating and cooling systems. A geothermal pump system is a cost effective and environmentally friendly way of heating and cooling buildings.
On August 1st, contractors began drilling at the Cedarbrook campus in the area where the geothermal structure is to be located. Industrial machines were utilized to drill over 200 loop wells that go 300 feet deep into the ground.
Cheltenham School District Director of Facilities, Dr. Ray Bavi, met with students to teach them how the geothermal heat pump system works and discuss its sustainable elements.
