Geothermal energy systems have the potential to power, heat, and cool homes and businesses across Maine.
On December 13, 2012, the Environmental & Energy Technology Council of Maine (E2Tech) will hold a forum at Wishcamper Center, USM Portland Campus, that will walk attendees through the design, installation, and operation of cost-effective geothermal systems in Maine, describe the types of systems, and advise on the benefits of and barriers to its use. Proper education and accurate information as to the types of economically viable and environmentally benign geothermal exchange systems available, along with potential financial incentives and transparent payback scenarios, are crucial to home and business owners’ courses of action.
