FairPoint upgrades central offices with energy-efficient projects

Vt Digger - - 10:23 am Mon Jul 1st, 2013

FairPoint Communications, Inc. (NasdaqCM: FRP), a leading provider of advanced communications in northern New England, is taking another step in reducing its energy use with a pair of projects at its central offices in Montpelier and Burlington.

FairPoint is a charter partner in Montpelier's District Heat Project, which will provide a local renewable energy supply to heat to government and private buildings in the city's downtown district.

FairPoint, in return for granting the city necessary easements to allow construction and ongoing maintenance, will connect to the state's new wood-fired heating system through a utility run by the city, eliminating the need for nearly 4,000 gallons of heating oil and saving almost $15,000 each year.
