Virginia Geothermal Heat Pump Association

Virginia Geothermal Heat Pump Association Virginia Geothermal Heat Pump Association (VGHPA) is a non-profit organization that was formed to advance the use of Geothermal technology. Virginia Geothermal Heat Pump Association (VGHPA) is a non-profit organization that was formed to advance the use of geothermal technology.

Specifically, we work with lobbyists to petition for new legislation at the State and Federal Governments. The aim of this legislation is to provide homeowners with financial incentives and benefits for installing geothermal technology in their homes. During the past six years a federal tax credit had been in place to provide homeowners with an incentive and financial benefit for installing Geothermal technology into their homes. Unfortunately at the end of last year, 2016, the Federal Tax credit that was in place is no longer available. Currently, our main mission at VGHPA has to do with a bill we have created a at the Virginia State level. If this bill is passed, it will provide new customers who purchase a Geothermal system for their home similar tax benefits as customers in previous years who have benefited from the Federal tax credit. It is essential that we work as hard as possible to ensure that this bill is passed. Not only will it benefit the environment and the lives of homeowners, it will also ensure that hundreds of jobs remain in the state!
