A $20 million expansion and renovation of the Juneau International Airport terminal is underway. Another $40 million is being spent on the runway safety areas. The $20 million renovation includes a modern heating system that will replace oil fired boilers with clean energy. The electrically-powered ground source heat pump system taps geothermal energy, that is, energy extracted from heat stored in the earth.
