AmeriDrill has been in the drilling industry for the better part of a century. With over 75 years of experience as a drilling company in PA, AmeriDrill has watched the world continuously search for varying forms of renewable energy. Certain trends simply never gain traction because of upfront costs or other factors. However, geothermal energy is a largely untapped renewable source of energy that has been available to consumers for a number of years. In fact, the concept of utilizing heat from below the earth’s surface has been around for centuries. Unfortunately, geothermal energy has not become widely popular due to limitations in direct electricity production. However, there are some major financial and ecological benefits associated with geothermal drilling.
The United States does hold the title of global leader in geothermal energy. However, only a small portion of those resources have been utilized. Currently, the western part of the United States is producing the vast majority of geothermal energy through power plants. With over 80% of the United States production, California is the run-away leader in geothermal energy. That being said, there are plenty of opportunities to capitalize on the benefits of geothermal energy. It may not be feasible for residents of Pennsylvania to rely on a geothermal power plant for electricity. However, it is entirely practical to utilize geothermal energy in home heating and cooling.
For years, AmeriDrill has been offering geothermal drilling services in Montgomery County, Bucks County, and the greater Philadelphia area. Home and business owners can take advantage of a tremendous resource in geothermal energy. Monthly utility costs can be dramatically slashed. For property owners who want to lessen both their carbon footprint and monthly energy costs, geothermal energy is a great option.
