US city expanding district heating

Pittsburgh Allegheny County Thermal (PACT) has reportedly signed a three-year contract with NRG Energy to support the development of its local district heating plans.

Under the terms of the agreement, NRG is expected to engineer the heating and cooling system for the Lower Hill and Uptown areas of the city. NRG Energy already owns and operates a district heating and cooling system in the Allegheny Center area of the city in the USA.

‘The PACT board's decision to hire NRG is a demonstration of the city's commitment to invest in our existing infrastructure, while supporting environmentally responsible growth and development,’ Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto reportedly said.
