Ground heat pumps harness the stored solar energy from just beneath the ground surface, via a horizontal collector loop which is located at a depth of approximately one metre below ground level and at a distance of approximately one metre apart.
Benefits of a ground source heat pump
Some of OHM Energy's recent projects are shown below. You can view all projects here.
A large self build project that benefited from around 10 acres of grazing land ideal for the installation 1,750m of ground collectors.
OHM Energy installed a Tesla battery that stores excess power that is not required during the day and can then be used at night to cut down on power imported.
This property is reliant on electricity with 2 electric vehicles, 2 heat pumps and also experiences the odd power outage due to its semi-rural location.
