The State of Illinois will provide the Hiawatha Community Unit School District #426 with $75,000 in Recovery Act funds to install a ground source heat pump system in a new, 30,000 square foot addition to the high school. This project involves the conversion of the existing HVAC system serving the high school building to a geothermal heat pump system. The work will require some electrical modifications to power the heat pumps.
