Abstract:Renewable energy air conditioning (A/C) has great opportunity because A/C drives Utitlity peak demand. In the past drilling costs severely limited applications. A novel new direct geo exchange system is being introduced that drastically cuts drilling costs, so that a 5 ton retrofit system can be sold (to homeowner) for just $7,000 with a nearly 50% margin for the contractor!. With utility incentives (up to $3,500) and the federal tax credit of $2,000 renewable energy air conditioning can be installed as the lowest net cost replacement A/C system and cut peak demand up to 70%.
