Vermont Capital Going With Phase 1 of Heat Project

The City Council in Vermont's capital has given the green light for phase one of a project that would bring Montpelier the state's first downtown heating district.

The plan is for buildings in downtown Montpelier to tie into a newly redeveloped woodchip-fired heating system that serves the Statehouse and surrounding state office buildings.

The Council voted 5-1 Wednesday evening to extend heating pipes from the state boilers east on State Street as far as Elm Street, a couple blocks from the Statehouse.
