direct exchange geothermal
Question submitted on 10/12/05

Do you have any information on contractors that work with dx geothermal in the metro area? Are there any rebate programs for this technology? Are you aware of or know of any existing dx geothermal projects in Minnesota?

Answer:

The U.S. Department of Energy has excellent resources on geothermal heat systems. See http://www.eere.energy.gov/consumer/your_home/space_heating_cooling/index.cfm/mytopic=12640 for an overview. Be sure to look at the links on the Learn More part of the page.

For links to financial incentives in Minnesota, see http://www.dsireusa.org/library/includes/map2.cfm?CurrentPageID=1&State=MN.

The Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium has case studies at http://www.geoexchange.org/residential/case.htm. They also have a list of local industry contacts at http://www.geoexchange.org/local/lic.htm.

The International Ground Source Heat Pump Association maintains a directory of accredited GHP installers and certified GeoExchange designers at http://www.igshpa.okstate.edu/directory/directory.asp. The directory is searchable by state.
