Why Is Geothermal Energy Considered Green?

Geothermal energy sounds green, but is it really?

Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy or thermal energy is considered to be a green alternative source of energy because it is naturally produced by the Earth’s core and emits very little GHG (Greenhouse Gas Emissions) that harm the Earth once it’s generated into electricity. Geothermal energy is considered to be one of the best sources of green alternative energy because it is produced from a steady and continuous flow of heat straight up to the surface from the Earth’s core.

Ways we are able to harness this green energy for our homes include:

  • Electricity: the producers of geothermal electricity have great hopes for this source of power because it is a constant 24/7 source of energy and doesn’t have to be a rhythmical stop and go source like wind and solar.
  • Heat Pumps: Geothermal energy can be used not only for heat pumps, but also for other uses such as heating and cooling buildings.
  • Industry: with its constant source of heating, cooling, electricity, and low emissions, many industrialists are pushing for this as the way of the future.
  • To obtain this green source of money saving energy you don’t have to journey to the center of the Earth or even live next to a hot spring. Geothermal energy is available anywhere. When you consider that 40% of your home’s energy comes from HVAC systems, the best time to utilize this green energy source and save some green is now.
