California made a substantial step to challenge climate change while expanding renewable energy resources. The package is as much stimulus as it is a relief by providing new tax credits for renewable energy, carbon capture and sequestering.

A GSHP system can be expensive on a house-by-house basis, but for a neighbourhood, community or city, they could be just the ticket.

Vertical ground loop systems utilize the temperature differential between the ground and the interior space to transfer heat — in or out.

"That market is increasing and actually increasing very, very quickly right now," said Stanley Reitsma, president of the Ontario Geothermal Association.

Builders now have an alternative to paying the upfront infrastructure cost themselves — third parties such as FortisBC Alternative Energy Systems and Toronto-based Diverso Energy will build and operate the borefield, then charge a monthly or annual service fee over decades to the condo owners. This way, "the developer gets to offload the risk and the costs associated with geothermal," said Jon Mesquita, Diverso Energy's chief operating officer. In B.C., such utilities are regulated and there are regulatory incentives for signing up with them.

Are you wondering about how Geothermal can help with electrification and emissions reduction?

There are some misconceptions about how a geothermal system works.

Here's a great explainer video that compares a conventional HVAC system to a building that utilizes geothermal energy.

OGA Member company Diverso Energy produced this fantastic video – see their website for more info: https://bit.ly/3jF46fy

See Gerald Seyler's video about his geothermal experience.

He had become interested in geothermal after first trying out one of the early air source heat pumps. They provided effective cooling and heating in small dwellings, especially during above-zero weather.

He had learned that geothermal heat pumps were even more efficient, and could be connected to existing wells used for drinking water. They paired a Climatemaster geothermal heat pump with their well, which is 213 feet deep, and for many years it provided 100% of heating and cooling for an 1800 square foot home.
