Chicagoland GEOthermal

The Geothermal Alliance of Illinois sponsored Chicagoland GEOthermal 2013, a one day FREE educational event on Oct. 30, 2013,  to encourage companies and individuals to get involved in the growing geothermal heat pump industry. The timing is perfect now, with continuation of the 30 percent federal tax credit through 2016 and new, expected utility incentives.

We were pleased that 60 HVAC professionals and others attended the event. GAOI will likely make this type of event an annual or regular function in northern Illinois as the geothermal market grows in the region. Thank you to all who attended the Oct. 30 event in Willowbrook. Look for a follow up next summer.

Thanks again to our sponsors who helped make Chicagoland Geothermal a reality. WaterFurnace International, Enertech Geothermal, CETCO, Connor Company/ClimateMaster, Great Lakes Geothermal,  Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO), EWC and Thermal Imaging Services, Inc. helped to sponsor the event! Please support these great GAOI sponsors!


Speakers at the event included:

*Steve Smith, CEO of Enertech Global, manufacturer of GeoComfort, Hydron Module and TETCO and Econar geothermal heat pumps.

*Dave Buss and Jeff Hurst of Connor Co., distributor of ClimateMaster geothermal heat pumps.

*Ryan Kerry, Great Lakes Geothermal, a Chicago area loop installer.
