GEO Awards Gulf Power for Geothermal Heat Pump Support

The Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO) board of directors voted unanimously to present The Southern Company/Gulf Power with its Utility Excellence Award. It recognizes “outstanding promotion of geothermal heat pumps by an electric service provider to its customers as an efficient, renewable energy end-use alternative.”

“GEO appreciates Gulf Power/Southern Company’s steadfast support of the geothermal heat pump (GHP) industry and our association,” said Chairman Tom Huntington (WaterFurnace). “Utility promotion of GHPs as an integral part of their demand-side management is a key to the GHP industry’s future.”

With a service territory covering approximately 430,000 customers in the northwest Florida Panhandle, Gulf Power Co. is an integral part of The Southern Company. With subsidiaries Alabama Power, Mississippi Power, and Georgia Power, The Southern Company is one of the nation’s largest electricity providers, serving over 4 million customers.

Southern Company/Gulf Power was a founding organization of the Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium (GHPC, which is now the Geothermal Exchange Organization), and has been a utility member for nearly 20 years.
