LONDONDERRY, N.H. — Bosch Thermotechnology Corp., a division of Robert Bosch North America, announced that Oct. 20, 2015 is National Geothermal Day in recognition of the geothermal heating and cooling industry in the U.S. The recognition day comes as part of National Energy Month.
Launched on Earth Day 2015, Bosch Thermotechnology is sponsoring a national geothermal awareness campaign to raise public awareness and understanding of geothermal heating and cooling technology and its environmental benefits.
The Bosch public campaign has been designed to further understanding and acceptance of geothermal technology as a renewable form of energy. It serves to recognize and advance the industry and its stakeholders — equipment manufacturers, drillers, installing contractors, industry associations, residential home developers, and homeowners.
The campaign’s centerpiece is a geothermal information website located at www.geothermalday.com. The website provides information, activities, and resources relating to geothermal along with an educational video and interactive children’s activities.
New to the website is the addition of a list of available incentives and rebates provided by each state for the installation of a geothermal heat pump system. This resource, which is linked to the online Database for State Incentives/Rebates for Renewable Energy (DSIRE), is quick go-to tool for homeowner/buyer and contractor use.
Also new to the website are details on Volunteer and GeoSelfie contests with cash gift card prizes to be awarded. For details and to sign up for the contests, visit www.geothermalday.com/supporters. On social media, participants should use the hashtag #GeoDay2015.
