$1.25M geothermal project to start at Greater Binghamton Airport

A $1.25 million project is underway to power new parts of Broome County’s airport using energy harnessed from the earth’s natural heat.

County officials gathered at the Greater Binghamton Airport on Tuesday to mark the start of a state- and federally-funded project to expand the airport’s geothermal heating system, which will be used to melt snow on the aircraft ramp and cool the airport’s terminal building.

The project will make the Broome County-owned airport the first in the country to use a geothermal system to heat an aircraft parking ramp, officials said.
