Region 5 TCTAC Blacks and Green featured for role in bringing geothermal energy to Chicago

Grist, in partnership with WBEZ, reported on the role of Region 5 TCTAC Blacks in Green in bringing geothermal energy to Chicago. In 2023, Blacks in Green was one of 11 community partners across the country chosen by the U.S. Department of Energy to design and develop a community geothermal heating and cooling district. That will mean building out a shared geothermal network across four city blocks containing more than 100 multi-family and single-family homes. “We’re not going to be the ones left on the gas bills with the spiraling costs and the technology that is continuing to pollute us,” Davis said.
