VPU TO DOWNSIZE RESIDENTIAL STEAM SYSTEM
In 2018, Virginia Public Utilities (VPU) will begin to downsize its district steam system. The move will phase out steam service to residential customers in Southside and Northside neighborhoods by the end of 2021. It will retain a core steam district to serve the local hospital, college, high school, downtown businesses, and some homes within that geographic area.
VPU originally had planned to complete this project by 2026, but an unexpected turn of events has accelerated the timeline and provided financial resources to assist residential customers through this transition. Assistance may include direct rebates or no-interest loans to help modernize homes with natural gas furnaces or other contemporary heating systems. Affected customers now have a unique opportunity to lower winter heating costs, improve home resale values,and position this proud Iron Range community for a more vibrant, sustainable future—at a minimal cost.
