Now dll stop being so optimistic
An accountant would tell you you have to depreciate the asset so it's much worse than that. i.e assuming it's worn out after twenty years (a good bet) it's worth nothing at that point. Also, the simple fact is that in Albany where the ground water is 46F about 75-80% of the energy comes from electricity (it's just about all heating so please don't anybody tell me about air conditioning savings). So let's talk about cost of component failures. Motors failures, we know about those, but don't ignore SS components in 12ppm hard water etc.etc.etc. So its up more like $60,000. But let's not worry about that silly money stuff (Albany certainly doesn't), let's look at the percentage of time it's cooling over the time spent heating. If they are not about in balance the ground will freeze unless it's an Artesian system (which I doubt). When the ground freezes the system output dies. Of course then it's time to build another system twice the size. I am of course dismissing ground magma geothermals (in NY) or diverting hot air from the NY Senate twitterings... wait a minute here I have a solution.
. Of course, magma geothermals might be possible one day if a fault opens up. Oh wait a minute, there IS a fault line that is active every 100 years that is just South of Albany.... hmmm...... let me follow that to its epicenter...... hmmm.... I got it, that would be right under the Indian Point nuclear reactor (and you think I am joking). So by ignoring anthracite over the years, not only are we dramatically escalating costs we now risk Armageddon.
Let's also gloss over the number of good extra people in NEPA that would be employed if we gradually expanded the anthracite industry as a coordinated plan.
So to conclude ... other than this board (of course) the whole place is filled with idiots it would appear (beam me up Scotty).
... and to think my wife calls me insensitive... hah.
