Claremont will be one of the few cities in the US that will use a Hot District Water System to heat homes and hot water with an approximate 20-25% savings. The energy district would be run by a private company Hot Zero and will not have any cost to the city, residents can choose to opt in or not. Dick Henry of Hot Zero has been in talks with Claremont City Manager Guy Santagate about for some time, but work could not be presented to the public until SB 74 was signed into law on Tuesday. The new law allows for Hot Water Energy Districts in NH. Dick Henry explains plans for Claremont will begin in Opera House Square in late summer.
