Schools + GHPs = Savings and Efficiency.
Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC.
The geothermal heat pump (GHP) is winning praise for its ability to help schools reduce energy costs while providing a clean, comfortable, quiet, and aesthetically pleasing heating and cooling capability. This pamphlet examines the benefits of installing a GHP system in new and existing school facilities, suggests the type of planning and partnerships needed for forming a GHP project, and discusses the assessment process for valuing a GHP system. Finally, the pamphlet examines how using the GHP system in the United States can ultimately reduce energy costs for fossil fuels and strengthen the country's economy, while lowering air pollution levels. Appendices list national GHP groups and associations that can provide support and information for a GHP effort and the names of schools in each state that already are GHP equipped. (GR)
