Click on the website of Tulsa’s Native Geothermal and you might learn a thing or two. Like how geothermal heating and cooling works. Or what government incentives are available to install a geothermal system.
In fact, Native Geothermal answers a multitude of questions in an FAQ and with an online video. The video shows how geothermal systems draw on energy stored at a constant temperature beneath the surface of the earth to heat and cool homes and businesses.
“There is really not a lot of good, credible information regarding geothermal heating and cooling technology coming out of Oklahoma or Texas, so Native has implemented an online strategy that makes our geothermal products and services easy to find on the Internet,” said Craig Immel, Native Geothermal’s founder. “Once visitors are on our website, we provide expert, common sense advice that is relevant and easy to understand.”
Recently, a reporter researching a story on geothermal heating and cooling for Shopping Centers Today magazine clicked on the Native Geothermal website and liked what he found. He followed up the website visit with an interview with Immel, whose comments were featured prominently in the article.
“The author of the article has been covering retail real estate for a long time, and I could tell that he really knew his stuff, so I was happy that he found value in my comments,” Immel said.
Native Geothermal is focused on offering design and consulting services for geothermal HVAC systems, as well as other renewable energy systems. Since the heating and cooling of buildings consumes approximately 25 percent of all energy produced in the United States, installation of highly efficient geothermal systems is a good business opportunity.
Native Geothermal is working with i2E to position the company for rapid growth in that dynamic market.
