This Ivy League School Is Planning a Geothermal Installation

At Timothy Off, we’re big fans of using geothermal energy as a source of heating. In fact, we encourage homeowners in the West Chester area to consider a geothermal installation in order to save money and reduce their carbon footprint. After all, that’s what Cornell University is planning on doing. A recent article by Popular Mechanics (originally adapted from the Cornell Chronicle) explains the Ivy League school’s plan to heat its campus.

The Coolest Hot Springs in the U.S.

What’s neat about hot spots is that they often result in hot springs, which are pools of groundwater that are heated by the Earth. While some are too hot to touch, there are many that are a temperature perfect for bathing or soaking. We put together a list of some of the coolest hot springs around the U.S. that are worth a visit.

There’s Geothermal Energy in the West Antarctic

Antarctica is divided into two sections – the west and the east. The smaller, western side is made up of something called the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and for the first time ever, scientists have recorded “surprisingly high” geothermal activity underneath it.

How Does Geothermal Energy Work?

As a society, we’ve successfully used the wind, the sun, and water to create power, but what many don’t know is we can also use the Earth itself. We know that wind and hydroelectric power are both created from moving elements, and that solar power is created from rays of heat, so it makes you wonder – how do we get power from the ground?
