Geothermal Heat Pumps Poised To Go Mainstream
Geothermal technology is quickly going from the early adopter stage to the mainstream. In fact the largest geothermal housing project of its kind is currently being built in Kennewick, Wash., and will feature over 400 individual housing lots. All the lots will use ClimateMaster geothermal systems. This is going to be a monumental leap for the geothermal heat pump industry, and we are very proud to be a part of it.
The development is called SouthCliffe. There is no other comparable development in the U.S. We really believe this build signifies the moment when this technology starts to move into the early majority stage. In fact, we feel these products and this technology will soon explode into a growth pattern we’ve never seen before. With ClimateMaster becoming a household name, and the 30 percent tax credit, it helps consumers make the decision to buy these products.
Specifically, the Kennewick development is using the ClimateMaster Tranquility 30 digital unit with vFlow™ variable speed pumps, and iGate™ digital commuting control technology.
SouthCliffe was built by developers Milo Bauder and Grant Young, who decided to use our geothermal products because they could make heating bills from 50 to 70 percent smaller. Once all the homes are finished they will have a thermal energy capacity that exceeds 5.5 megawatts.
It doesn’t end at SouthCliffe, however. We are also working with developers in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, and Pennsyvania. Developers are really looking into this technology, more than ever before.
As the leaders in geothermal heat pump technology we are very excited to be a partner in all these developments, and look forward to more to come!
