In this episode, anchor Brock Yordy talks to Donovan Gordon, director of clean heating and cooling for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Gordon makes a compelling case for more geothermal drillers — fast. The state has ambitious plans to install a million heat pumps by 2030. It’s Driller Newscast episode 29.
