Representatives of the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives (AIEC) and the Rural Electric Convenience Cooperative (RECC) will present a $40,167 GeoAlliance grant to Lincoln Land Community College officials, to help fund the energy efficient, geothermal heating and cooling system used at the new LLCC-Taylorville Classroom Building. 

Experts will be on hand to explain the technology involved. Geothermal is the greenest system available for heating and cooling, and underscores LLCC’s commitment to green stewardship and reducing energy costs.

The College will be represented by LLCC Trustee and State Representative Wayne Rosenthal; LLCC Vice President for Administrative Services Rich Vertrees; Assistant Vice President for Facilities and Construction Hugh Garvey; John Shafer, architect for the building; and LLCC staff.  

Nancy Nixon, marketing administrator for the AIEC; Dana Smith, director of member and public relations at RECC; and Mel Repscher, RECC director, will present the grant. 

Refreshments will be served.
