Massachusetts town experiments with community heating and cooling

Jennifer and Eric Mauchan live in a gabled house with a chimney in Framingham, Massachusetts, which is cooled by five air conditioning units. In the summer, the electric bill for the 2,600-square-foot home can be $200.

In winter, heat it with natural gas It often costs more than $300 a month, even with the thermostat set at 18 degrees Celsius (65 Fahrenheit).

“My mother, when she was alive, did not come to our house in the winter” because it was too cold, Eric Mauchan said.

But starting this week, your neighborhood will be part of a pilot climate solution that connects 37 homes and businesses with a highly efficient underground heating and cooling system. Even taking into account that several of the constructions will replace natural gas with electricity, people are expected to see a 20% reduction in their electric bills on average. It is a model that according to some experts can be expanded and repeated elsewhere.
