Geothermal Energy

The Pierce-Arrow complex in North Buffalo is a familiar site to area residents, a symbol of a luxury car company that went away in the Great Depression. Now, remnants of the plant are being re-purposed by developers for housing and the Elmwood Avenue landmark is getting what may be the area's largest geothermal energy system.


Making the move to heat and cool your home or small business with geothermal energy can be costly. A Western New York state Assemblyman is among a group of lawmakers backing a bill to add low or no-interest financing for that cost to the state’s On-Bill Recovery Financing Program.
