About The GeoGrid™
The heart of the EcoSmart program is the GeoGrid™, a geothermal district system that uses the earth below our feet to heat and cool the home. Geothermal heat pumps reduce energy consumption for space conditioning by up to 70%. Installed during the early phases of the development, the GeoGrid™ becomes part of the infrastructure, similar to the community-wide water, sewer, and electric utility lines. For the underground vertical and horizontal geothermal piping, EcoSmart is using a polyethylene piping product, which comes with 50 years of warranty against any breakage.
