|Contractors worked Sunday afternoon to seal and cap a test-core drill site behind Ruth Moyer. FTM file.|
Bluegrass Geothermal was preparing the site to drill for geothermal energy, which was to be part of the Ruth Moyer Elementary school renovation. Geothermal energy is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. Geothermal power requires no fuel, and is therefore immune to fuel cost fluctuations. However, capital costs are significant, which is why a test was being done to see if the land was suitable.
