- Greenhouse gas will be reduced by installing geothermal heat pumps. Geothermal uses no oil, gas or propane for heating buildings. It is powered by electric & the temperature of the earth.
- Reducing building owners heat/cool bills up to 70% every year once installed. That will help schools, office building retail & homeowner’s wallet. Lower taxes in towns for their energy expenses.

Heat pump sales
The total market for U.S. GHPs in 2009 is estimated to be about $3.7 billion dollars, including equipment and installation cost (and not reduced by government or other incentives). PMG expects a high growth rate to continue for a few years and by 2013 PMG projects the U.S. geothermal heat pump market to almost triple in value.
