WE DELIVER END-TO-END SOLUTIONS

Brightcore provides the intellectual capital to design and build the geothermal ground loop with our mechanical and drilling partners.

Brightcore also can provide the financial capital to fund 100% of the upfront costs of the geothermal ground loop.

The Developer/Building owner signs a 30 year “PPA” style contract with Brightcore to access the geothermal ground loop for its HVAC system in exchange for a monthly payment.

As part of the contract, Brightcore monitors and maintains the geothermal ground loop for the term.

We utilize technology to evaluate and model your facility to identify all applicable technologies and solutions

ANALYSIS/ASSESSMENT

We manage the entire procurement and installation process, including disposal of your legacy systems

IMPLEMENTATION

We assume full responsibility for the continued performance and impact reporting at no additional cost to you

BASICS OF HOW GEOTHERMAL HVAC WORKS

Heat pumps move energy to efficiently heat or cool a space

In the winter the heat pump boosts the relatively warm ground temperature to heat the building.

 

In the summertime, the geothermal system rejects heat to the cool ground and uses the cool ground temperatures to operate at extremely high efficiencies.

For every unit of electricity used 4 units of energy comes from the ground in the form of renewable heat. This makes Geothermal systems up to 50% more efficient than conventional air conditioning.

In the winter the ground is a heat-source

In the summer the ground is a heat-sink
