The Clean Underground Energy

Geothermal systems harness the power of the Earth to heat and cool buildings, demonstrating that not all energy harnessed from the ground is inefficient. Geothermal energy has become an increasingly popular source of fuel for rural areas that have limited access to other renewables like wind and solar. Several communities in the SEDA-COG region have buildings powered or heated with geothermal systems, and many see great savings.
