Geothermal Technology: A Smart Way to Lower Energy Bills
Department or Administrative Unit
Engineering Technologies, Safety, and Construction
Heating costs for both natural gas and oil have risen dramatically in recent years--and will likely continue to do so. Consequently, it's important that students learn not only about traditional heating technology, but also about the alternative methods that will surely grow in use in the coming years. I've had personal experience with one such method--geothermal--and share what I've learned in this article for the benefit of other technology educators and their students.
