Site Visit – Wake Tech – East Wake Campus Centralized Geothermal


June Meeting

Join NC Piedmont AEE on Tuesday June 20th at 5:30 for a tour of Wake Tech’s new East Geothermal Campus

Back in January of 2022 we visited the new Wake Tech East Campus and it’s centralized geothermal HVAC system under construction.  This was an early on view of a cutting edge campus focused on the energy efficiency available with geothermal heat transfer wells. Now we are going to go back to see it in operation.  For those that attended the first one this will be a fascinating follow up.  For those of you who weren’t with us in 2022 please come and see this exciting new Wake Tech campus.  This campus has the potential to be one of the most efficient college campuses in the US with 300 wells used for heat transfer instead of cooling towers.  This saves both energy and water, with cooling towers rarely needed.
