If you missed out on the Reframing the Policy Discussion on Geothermal Heat Pump Systems webinar, you could catch it here.

This session was presented by Martin Luymes (HRAI) and Jean-Phillipepe Hardy (Dunsky Energy Consulting).

They discussed the study’s findings and included some discussion of key policy tools that can aid in making these benefits a
reality, based on a survey of other jurisdictions. A detailed analysis of these policy tools will be released soon in a second Dunsky study commissioned by HRAI/OGA.

Study Finds Big Savings for Government Electrification Plans Through Ground-Source Heat Pumps.

Study Finds Big Savings for Government Electrification Plans Through Ground-Source Heat Pumps.
For many years, experts in the field have known that ground-source heat pumps (GSHPs) offer considerable energy cost savings to Canadians while reducing carbon emissions and contributing to Canada's fight against climate change. This report clearly shows that, in addition to these savings, the technology has unique attributes that could deliver many billions of dollars in savings to the electricity grid," said Sandy MacLeod, HRAI President and CEO.

How much does it cost to install a geothermal system?

The cost of installing a geothermal system depends on the type of system you choose.

You can have an open or closed loop, and it can use forced air, hydronic baseboard or radiant floors for heating and cooling distribution within the building. The initial installation cost is higher than a conventional HVAC system, but the operating costs are far lower.

For a quote on what it would cost to install a geothermal system in your home or building, visit the HRAI to find a geothermal contractor near you.

"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.
