Geothermal Energy


Geothermal energy (derived from the root words "geo", meaning earth, and "thermal" meaning heat) is generated from heat energy contained deep within the earth. By taking advantage of the warmth of the earth, both utilities and homeowners can utilize a renewable source of energy that can be used to produce power or heat and cool a home efficiently.

Geothermal heat pumps

Although homeowners do not drill wells into the earth to find steam and hot water, geothermal heat pumps provide a technology that utilizes the near-constant ground temperature in order to heat and cool your home. To find out more about geothermal heat pumps, call 1-800-268-9644.

Rebates are often available for residential customers who convert from gas to a geothermal heat pump. Get more helpful information on renewables from one of our Energy Experts by calling 1-800-268-9644.
