Oberlin’s drive toward carbon neutrality will continue this spring with the third phase of construction for the Sustainable Infrastructure Program (SIP). Removing and replacing trees is necessary to upgrade the existing steam pipes with new low temperature hot water and chilled water pipes for the new geothermalenergy system. This week trees are being planted after the completion of year two construction. To continue to make way for efficient transmission of geothermal heating and cooling, select trees will be removed on campus the first week of January 2023.
