Do you mean ground source heat pumps or real geothermal?

Both are more effective than traditional fuel sources and should be used as a primary source. The amount of energy savings in the summer would be huge

Yeah I built my house and put in a ground source heat pump. Ten years later I added solar and now we produce as much as we use. It's pretty outstanding and very comfortable. Definitely pays for itself.

There is some company that says they have a new and better drilling technology and they claim they can dig deep enough to put a real geothermal plant anywhere.
