SAINT JOHN, NB, Aug. 11, 2010 (Telegraph Journal ) -City officials are in discussions with Irving Pulp and Paper Ltd. about a potential energy deal that would see the company sell waste heat to the municipality.

The city would circulate the heat through underground pipes to uptown buildings as part of a so-called district energy system.

Negotiators with the municipality and company are now privately discussing energy and maintenance costs to find out if a partnership would be viable.
