Geotechnical Environmental Services Inc, Nevada and California


A ground source heat exchange (GSHE) system provides many advantages over standard methods to both the environment and your wallet by leveraging the earth's natural ability to heat and cool. As energy costs continue to rise and pollution concerns continue to be a hot topic, GSHE systems hold a solution to both concerns.


San Diego


Sullivan Solar Power, San Diego, CA


Generate your own energy rather than giving your money to a utility. During the day any solar power generated by your system that is not used within your home is routed to the utility grid for credit with the utility. When your solar power system sends excess power to the utility your meter actually spins “backwards” which generates credits on your account. As a solar power owner you will be considered a “customer generator” by the utility and the utility is required, by law, to purchase any excess solar power your system produces until your bill is eliminated. The cost of a solar power system is a fraction of what you will pay the utility over the years. Currently, you are throwing money away by sending the utility a check month after month, year after year.
