The new geothermal heating system, supplemented with gas-fired peaking boilers, was intended to displace district heating boilers, large load boilers, and individual home heating systems that were fuelled primarily with coal, coke or oil. Local benefits were expected to include reduced incidence and severity of respiratory disease, reduced damage to biota in the National Park, increased visibility, and increased volume and quality of tourism in the area. Global benefits were also anticipated based on reductions in CO2 emissions.
