The city of Troy will request a $5 million state grant to create a geothermal district downtown to provide heat and air conditioning to building owners near One Monument Square.
A 25% match would be required if the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority approves the grant, but the intent is for the match to be paid by the builder/owner of the geothermal system, not city taxpayers.
"It's good for Troy to be at the forefront of this," said Steven Strichman, commissioner of planning and economic development. "It's a cleaner, cheaper alternative to gas or coal."
The Troy Industrial Development Agency approved paying a consulting firm $5,000 to assist the city with the grant application. The firm, Egg Geo LLC, is based in St. Petersburg, Florida.
