NY Domestic Hot Water Data November 09 2020

Jens Ponikau, NY-GEO board member and founder of Buffalo Geothermal, has put together a presentation on the performance of geo domestic hot water (DHW) vs. electric resistance and gas DHW heating.

The data comes from 8 installations by member companies of Ground Up, the Geothermal Alliance of WNY. Ponikau emphasizes the importance of DHW to peak energy demand because of the high percentage of use during early morning hours as New Yorkers take showers.
