Skychaser Energy is pioneering Thermal Direct, a demand reduction platform that targets energy-intensive applications in the commercial, industrial, and public property markets.
Our projects leverage a number of proven technologies. Among the most important is the geothermal heat pump.
Geothermal space conditioning has been available in its present form for nearly 60 years. Reliability and extreme energy efficiency drew many early adopters willing to absorb the high first cost of installation. In fact, there are more than 1.5 million installations in the United States.
According to the U.S. Department Of Energy, geo heat pumps remain one of the most energy-efficient but underused technologies for space conditioning and water heating. While a retrofit can reduce HVAC-related power consumption by 45 - 65%, first cost of installation continues to be the primary barrier. Thermal Direct is a scalable demand reduction platform that eliminates this barrier for select building owners with energy-intensive applications.
