Geothermal Project Up and Running
The new ground source heat pumps are humming away on the roof of the PVREA headquarters building. The Board of Directors voted to replace aging HVAC equipment with geothermal units when needed. New software is being employed to monitor and adjust the new units and everything is working as expected. Current energy use is only a fraction of the old air source units and the new equipment should pay for itself in about 6-7 years. Because the rest of the HVAC equipment is now reaching the end of its life cycle the Board is looking into costs to replace other units.

One of the new geothermal units is placed on the headquarters roof in September.
Students from Windsor Middle School are shown the geothermal system by Gary the Energy Guy.
The first step was drilling the loop field early in the summer.
