Rochester District Heating Cooperative has completed its $7 million downtown facility modernization projects. The infrastructure updates will allow the nonprofit thermal energy cooperative to provide buildings throughout Rochester’s Center City with cost-conscious thermal energy.

RDH is the state’s only nonprofit thermal energy cooperative. The agency owns and manages Rochester’s district energy system that supplies thermal energy to 46 buildings, totaling more than 8.5 million square feet and nine miles of distribution piping in downtown Rochester.

“The recent investments to the Lawn Street plant are part of RDH’s three-pillar strategic plan that further positions the cooperative to support the renaissance of Rochester,” RDH general manager John Duchesneau said in a statement. “The updates to the legacy infrastructure have increased our capacity, redundancy and efficiency—making RDH a competitive choice for building owners and developers looking for an alternative energy source.”
