The 24 Colony Street project is firing on all cylinders, and even had a special guest on-site this week. Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy, as well as several other city and state representatives and officials, were present for the official groundbreaking ceremony on July 8, 2015. Of the project, the Governor said in an article written in the Meriden Record Journal: “It’s about the redevelopment of an industrial city, it is about housing opportunities — affordable housing opportunities, market rate opportunities, senior housing — it’s about connecting this side of town with the other side of town where lots of work is going on.” Malloy is avid supporter of clean energy programs in the state of Connecticut, and has been impressed by the work going on in Meriden.

AEG President Jim Moran got to talk to the governor about the renewable energy aspects of the project, as well as workforce training opportunities for renewable energy systems. Also, the New England Renewable Energy (NERE) crew has begun installing the vertical geothermal piping. Once the crew finishes the vertical pipes, they will lay out the horizontal pipes and connect them to the vertical bores. Building construction will begin after that. Keep your eye out for more updates as the project continues.
