Hot & Cold

With the arrival of summer, construction at the new home of Montana State University’s Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship has moved into high gear. Recently, the last of fifty two, 500 foot deep geothermal wells were successfully completed. Each well holds 1,000 feet of tubing which means Jabs Hall is surrounded by about 10 miles of water-filled underground pipes; this translates to millions of available BTU’s, which helps support MSU’s goals for reduction of non-renewable energy consumption. Thanks to Erik Renna from Morrison-Maierle and Dan Stevenson from MSU for agreeing to participate.
