Urge Congress to Preserve Options including Geothermal Heat Pumps

Across the nation, public power districts and electric cooperatives help our member-owners save energy and money by promoting the use of geothermal heat pumps. These super-efficient heat pumps can cut home heating and cooling bills by up to 70 percent. Many Nebraskans, with the support of their public power electric supplier, have installed geothermal units with assistance from the geothermal tax credit. The tax credit expires at the end of this year, jeopardizing the continued use of this energy efficient technology. Please help us to ask Congress to extend this credit by supporting H.R. 5167.
