Abstract

Our goal is to lower the peak electricity demand of the northeast grid through the use of a geothermal home heating and cooling system. We will do so by targeting homes in the northeast furnished with preexisting wells through which the geothermal systems will be retrofitted. In turn, the large excavation cost of a home geothermal system will be greatly reduced, if not eliminated, and correspondingly, the peak electricity demand will drop.
