Geo-exchange research underway in Oklahoma City subdivision

In Oklahoma, a consortium of more than a dozen geothermal companies is testing technology at eight homes in an Oklahoma City subdivision to see if geo-exchange systems can be made more affordable. The team is trying different equipment and methods of installing the systems. The first installation will use a new heat exchanger designed by Holland-based Geothex, which is designed to allow the system to function in shallower holes, making it more efficient. The testing grounds is Oklahoma City’s Hope Crossing subdivision, the largest Habitat for Humanity and geothermal neighborhood in the U.S.
