District heating is the distribution of heat from a local central location to meet the needs of customers
within a municipality. RDH operates a steam generation facility that provides steam heat to all members of
The Loop within downtown Rochester, eliminating the need for on-site boiler systems and maintenance
personnel. District heating operates at higher efficiencies and with better pollution control than
traditional boilers or coal-burning facilities allowing RDH to promote a cleaner Rochester while keeping
service costs down for all members.
