A group of Ithaca businessmen are pursuing funding from Common Council to conduct a study on the possibility of a district energy utility downtown. Energized Ithaca, the four-man partnership behind the study, is seeking an endorsement that will also include cooperation and non-financial support. Herb Dwyer, one of the partners, spoke at a Public Works meeting in March about how a minimal-waste power plant can be an efficient way to provide power downtown. This is an already proven method in the area, as Cornell University houses a similar type of plant. The resolution will go before Common Council today in an attempt to draw federal funding.
