It could be said that nothing too exciting ever happens in Cleaveside Close, the odd Bingo evening, coffee morning and bring & buy sale; but recently there has been a lot of activity and I have heard that one or two residents have had some excitement since the Geothermal men arrived.
Its not everyday you get a hole drilled 100ft deep in your front garden to supply your home with state of the art geothermal heating systems.
Wikipedia says that: 'Thermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature of matter. The Geothermal energy of the Earth's crust originates from the original formation of the planet (20%) and from radioactive decay of minerals (80%). The geothermal gradient, which is the difference in temperature between the core of the planet and its surface, drives a continuous conduction of thermal energy in the form of heat from the core to the surface. The adjective geothermal originates from the Greek roots γη (ge), meaning earth, and θερμος (thermos), meaning hot.
