Paris To Heat Homes Using 135 Degree F Underground Water
Say what you want about the French, but when it comes to new alternative-energy practices, they are cutting-edge.
Implications - Hot water iwll be pumped from the underground up to ground level and distributed into residential homes for use. The geothermal water has a temperature of 135 degrees and can be used to heat up additional water and to heat radiators. City officials expect the project to be completed by the end of 2011.
