Geothermal energy is a renewable, environmentally friendly source of energy. It is highly efficient and can be used to provide heating and cooling for our homes and business via the use of ground source heat pumps. This type of energy will outlive many other kinds of fossil fuel alternatives. Unlike solar, wind, wave and tidal alternatives, geothermal energy can provide continuous energy production whatever the weather. Another significant advantage of geothermal energy is how much quieter it is, than conventional heat and air systems. In some cases the water produced by your geothermal well can be used for irrigation. Overall, it is a comfortable, cost effective source of heating and cooling for your family's home or your business (Clean Energy Ideas).
