Plymouth State to convert campus to natural gas and save

 

PLYMOUTH – Plymouth State University has signed a deal with a Boston natural gas company to convert the university from burning diesel oil to using a “virtual pipeline” natural gas system starting next fall. The new system will pay for itself in one year, according to Stephen Taksar, the university’s vice president for finance and administration. It will reduce carbon emissions on the campus by 12 percent. That fits with the university’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by the year 2050, Taksar said.
