The article discusses the multi-dwelling project Hope Crossing, which is one of the largest green Habitat for Humanity housing development in the U.S. that serves all homes using geothermal heating and cooling systems. It mentions that more than 1,100 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year will be cut when all 217 homes in Hope Crossing are occupied. It also notes that Climate Master in Oklahoma City donated Tranquility 20 Series for every house in the Hope Crossing Project.
