Claremont to begin heating district in downtown area
In May, the Claremont City Council unanimously approved a plan to work with Granite State-based HotZero LLC on creating the new heating system in and around Opera House Square downtown.
“They are in the process of negotiating with some building owners and planning the final steps of phase one,” city Manager Guy Santagate said on Monday. “The city would allow the installation of pipes to the sidewalk levels,” Santagate said.
If phase one goes well, building owners’ costs should go down, he said.
This would be the first such heating system in New Hampshire, Santagate said, and could be another step toward the revitalization of the city.
If successful, the city would consider adding or expanding the heating district, Santagate said.
