Geosource Energy was incorporated in 2004 with specific intent to improve delivery of geothermal systems and increase market share for these systems. We provides complete in-house contracting services for construction of horizontal and vertical geothermal fields. Our company focus is on medium to large geothermal systems with selection of equipment to provide rapid installation of high quality geothermal loop fields.
Our company’s specialty is installation of vertical geothermal fields below mid- and high-rise buildings with over 20 below building geothermal systems completed to-date. Proprietary techniques have been developed to ensure high quality installation with minimum disruption to construction schedule. Geosource Energy Inc. provides a unique field-tested ‘drilling from surface, tie-in at building subgrade’ approach used in most of these projects. Geosource Energy Inc. also provides angled (up to 45⁰) geothermal loop installation to depths of 250 m for sites with small surface area access such as retrofits, tie-in restrictions, and high rise buildings.
Geosource Energy continues to play a leadership role with policy makers, suppliers, developers and builders, and designers to reach its goal – geothermal systems become default technology to lower buildings’ energy requirements and emissions.
