Innovative Aquifer Energy System Planned at Stockton

Press of Atlantic City, 11.13.2006 - Another environmental first is on the horizon at Richard Stockton College. Plans for building the nation's only aquifer thermal energy storage system are now in the works. The system, which will rely on the vast Cohansey aquifer, will save the college an estimated $90,000 annually.

“Stockton is indeed an (organization) that we would consider a leader in the state,” said Doyal Siddell, of the NJ Board of Public Utilities. “They (already) have one of the world's largest closed geothermal systems. ... They are (also) known for their fuel cell, solar, wind turbine ... and their energy efficiency upgrades in their buildings .... The college is a leader in the application of new and alternative technology.” Read the full story here.
