What is Geolar?

Geolar Overview 2
Geolar is the first commercially viable process for achieving Net Zero Carbon Footprint for household operations in residential homes.  It is the only method that can economically achieve Net Zero Carbon Foot Print in Minnesota.

Geolar brings together two renewable energy technologies to achieve Net Zero Carbon Foot Print:

  1. Geothermal to eliminate the burning of fossil fuels at the home site
  2. Solar to provide clean renewable electricity to run the geothermal system and all other house hold operations

Why Geolar?

There are manyGeolar Overview 4 reasons to adopt Geolar. But the three of the strongest
reasons are :

Save the Environment
According to the EPA the average US home emits about 12.4 tons of CO2 for household operations of heating, cooling hot water, appliances, lights and refrigeration. Geolar is the only technology that can achieve Net Zero and eliminate all 12.4 tons of CO2!  —–More—–   —–Free Estimate—-

Tremendous Investment opportunity
Geolar presents an unmatched and unbeatable investment opportunity with a ROI that is beyond anything that can be matched by traditional financial investments. And it is also the safest investment you can make.

The investment is the upfront costs of installing the two systems. The return on that investment comes in the form of:

  1. 30% Tax Credit
  2. Utility Rebates
  3. Savings
  4. Increased Housing value

The return on your Geolar investment is dramatic and far exceeds what you would get from traditional financial investments.

Tremendous Savings
By installing solar you are switching from a consumer of electricity to a producer of electricity. Your costs for household operations become zero on the day you start Geolar. Over a twenty year period the savings typically range from the 10′ to 100’s of thousand of dollars in savings.

Peace of Mind

Geolar also provides a psychological return on your investment by increasing your Peace of Mind.

  1. You’re off the wild fossil fuel roller coaster and no longer have to adjust your budget and thermostat to changing fuel prices.
  2. You know exactly what you will pay each day, each month and each year – 0 dollars.
  3. Imagine going into your retirement years with no expenses for household operations. No more worries about how your fixed income is going to keep up with sky rocketing energy prices. No need to get that reverse mortgage just to stay in your own home!
  4. No more worries about back drafts or a leaky furnace dumping carbon monoxide into your home; or a gas leak blowing up your entire home.
  5. Knowing they are doing their part to combat global climate change and create a better future for their children and grandchildren.

Geolar Economic Analysis & Examples

Geolar Overview 3
Both Geothermal and Solar required customized designs for every home because of the tremendous number of variables involved. Therefore the economics can vary dramatically between homes of the same size and even in the same location.

The purpose of these economic examples is to provide a “ball park” analysis that will demonstrate the economics behind Geolar. While the specifics may vary home by home, the general economics behind Geolar remain the same.

Net Metering

Homes with Geolar are still on the electrical grid because Solar can only Net Meter Chartmeet 100% of a homes electrical requirements when the sun is shinning. Therefore at, and especially in the winter, there are times during the day when the home will need to draw electricity from the grid.

But during the day time hours, especially from spring to fall, the solar system will produce more electricity than the home can use. At these times the electricity flows back to the grid to replace the electricity that was used at night. Over the course of the year the amount taken from the grid and the amount replaced to the grid net out to zero.

House Hold Operations

CO2 Emmissions US vs World

CO2 Emissions

The target for Geolar is to achieve net zero carbon footprint for household operations. According to the EPA household operations consist of heating, cooling, hot water, appliances, lighting and refrigeration. These basic household functions contribute 12.4 tons of CO2 on an annual basis for the average American home.

In a base case scenario add insulation or replacing windows might achieve a net decrease in emission of CO2 around 1.3 tons. And that is only if you start with little or no insulation and old single pane windows. In contract Geolar can eliminate all 12.4 tons of CO2 emissions.

Achieving Net Zero Carbon Footprint on household operations is probably the single greatest contribution a person can make to reducing green house gas emissions.

Electric Cars

model-s-red@2x-png8Adding an electric car to a Geolar system can eliminate another 11.7 tons of CO2 emissions. The addition of a car increase the size and cost of the solar array. If the home can handle the larger array, the costs are offset by electrical savings.

“Tesla’s new Powerwall is a home battery that charges using electricity Tesla-Powerwall-Blackgenerated from solar panels, or when utility rates are low, and powers your home in the evening. It also fortifies your home against power outages by providing a backup electricity supply. Automated, compact and simple to install, Powerwall offers independence from the utility grid and the security of an emergency backup.”

This new technology from Tesla offers the possibility of taking Geolar to a whole new level by going off the grid completely. This is a very new product, so check in with us in the future as we track its entry into the market place.
