Geothermal info offered
WEST WINFIELD — There will be a free information session about geothermal energy at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 16, at the John Mcnulty property, 156 Pritchard Road.
Learn and observe at an on-site installation of a pond-source geothermal system that also features a solar photovoltaic electric power source. Learn of these technologies as possibilities for heating, cooling and electrical needs for a farm, business or residence.
Registration is requested by March 14 by calling 315-736-3394 extension 124, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit reg.cce.cornell.edu/gpib_230. Leave a name, address, email and preferred phone in case of changes.
Nick Pryputniewicz, mechanical engineer, of NP Environmental, will speak on the basics of geothermal systems, components, costs and incentives. He will offer information on site evaluations, energy audits, price and value and system performance.
A solution to high energy costs is buried underground, organizers said.
Geothermal pumps can provide clean, quiet heating and cooling while cutting utility bills by up to 70 percent. The earth’s temperature stays at a constant 50 degrees independent of how hot or cold it is outside. Deep wells may also be an option if space and lateral loops do not fit the property plan.
