Just Say No to Combustion in Buildings, And Say Yes to Geothermal Heat Pumps

Just Say No to Combustion in Buildings, And Say Yes to Geothermal Heat Pumps

State governments must enact policies for energy efficiency and greater renewable energy production. And we believe that state and local governments must seriously consider innovative ways to harvest the “low-hanging fruit” of energy efficiency that can be gained by reducing the heating and hot water needs of buildings across America. In both cases, geothermal heat pump (GHP) technologies MUST be included for their efficient energy use and for the renewable energy they pull from the ground. We must educate policy makers that huge strides in energy efficiency and renewable energy production can be made by addressing the thermal loads of buildings with GHPs. The U.S. Department of Energy says that buildings account for nearly 40 percent of national energy use and consume more energy than any sector of the U.S. economy, including transportation and industry.
