I figured if a system could be designed to increase the amount of warm energy going back to the heat pump during winter-time use and it could be done inexpensively or produced free, then it will be successful

'Geothermal Energy Storage' in this case is raising the ground temperature in the winter in a controlled manner, around the geothermal ground source loop field to increase it's efficiency during winter-time operations.
SolarHot panels will produce hot water which will be circulated throughout the geothermal loop field from a specially designed network of underground tubing by Lamson & Sessions. The hot water will be circulated by using 12vdc pumps with the electric power produced from the photovoltaic electric solar panels. Excess energy produced will be stored in a bank of batteries. The energy (hot water) will be produced from free energy (the sun) and will be circulated using power produced from the sun as well. (more free energy)
'Geothermal Energy Storage' pioneer, Dan Marsh said the idea seemed simple enough! Geothermal ground source heat pumps use the earth as a heat exchanger instead of outside air which is never constant. During winter-time use, geothermal ground source heat pumps dissipate cold temperatures extracted from the home throughout the horizontal loop field while absorbing warm energy from the earth sending it back to the heat pump unit. Dan added, "I figured if a system could be designed to increase the amount of warm energy going back to the heat pump during winter-time use and it could be done inexpensively or produced free, then it will be successful"
Dans Home Energy Project also includes heating the home and heating the domestic hot water using the SolarHot panels.
