Well what is solar power?
Solar power is energy absorbed from the heat and light from the sun. Solar energy can be used to produce heat, light, hot water, electricity, and even cooling. The process of converting light from the sun into electricity is called solar “photovoltaics”, or PV for short. Solar power applications are used in a wide variety of applications including grid-tied and off-grid cabins and homes and commercial businesses.
People have harnessed solar energy for centuries. As early as the 7th century B.C., people used simple magnifying glasses to concentrate the light of the sun into beams so hot they would cause wood to catch fire.

Geothermal technology is the most cost effective renewable alternative to today’s traditional oil, gas and propane heating systems. If you want to invest in a worry-free system that will bring you year-round comfort, save you money, and offer the added benefit of preserving the environment, geothermal is the a good choice.
Heat pumps move heat from one place to another – from outside to inside a home, for example. That’s why they’re called “heat pumps.”
All heat pumps have an outdoor unit (called a condenser) and an indoor unit (an evaporator coil).
A substance called a refrigerant carries the heat from one area to another. When compressed, it is a high temperature, high-pressure liquid. If it is allowed to expand, it turns into a low temperature, low pressure gas. The gas then absorbs heat.
In the winter the normal heat pump system extracts heat from outdoor air and transfers it inside where it is circulated through your home’s ductwork by a fan.
Even cold air contains a great deal of heat; the temperature at which air no longer carries any heat is well below -200 degrees Fahrenheit. But the coldest temperature ever recorded in the lower 48 states was -70 degrees, recorded at Roger Pass, Montana on January 20, 1954. Obviously in such weather, a heat pump would have to work pretty hard to produce 68-degree temperatures inside your home.
That’s why geothermal heat pumps are so efficient.
Geothermal heat pumps are similar to ordinary heat pumps, but instead of using heat found in outside air, they rely on the stable, even heat of the earth to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, hot water.
