Tour Background:

MATC has installed a geothermal heating system at the Mequon Campus. Although geothermal uses slightly more electricity than a conventional system, the reduction in natural gas use is significant at nearly 63%, and the total energy use shows a 29% reduction. Geothermal energy would reduce CO2 emissions by 53%. 

The geothermal system at the Mequon Campus consists of a stand-alone full geothermal heat pump plant (GHP) to handle the entirety of the campus load throughout the year. The heat pump is sized for approximately 300 tons to cover both peak cooling and heating needs for the campus. In addition, a geothermal well field consisting of approximately 150 vertical bores at 500’ in depth handle annual imbalance in cooling and heating needs for the campus.
