A Key to the Future: Utilities’ Vital Role in Widespread Adoption of Geothermal Heat Pumps

Renewable Energy - Wed, 2018-03-07 12:05

Utilities are a natural partner for the geothermal heat pump (GHP) industry. Why? Because utilities have a broad consumer base and infrastructure, and need to both build load (sales) and levelize that demand to make the most efficient use of their electrical generation capacity throughout the year.  GHPs are a technology that fills that niche.
