Thermal Storage

Using the stable temperature of the earth to store heat/cooling

Rohde Brothers, Inc. has cracked the code in heat storage. We’ve been highly successful at geothermal storage of heat in the ground and also creating ice banks to store cold temps for use when a chill is needed. These systems may be able to save you large amounts of energy, and money.

        Is Geothermal right for my cold storage operation?

        Geothermal systems for cold storage make sense because of the cost savings you realize in a short period of time. The tax credits will provide you anywhere between 30 and 50 percent of the cost of system construction. On top of that geothermal for cold storage will save you roughly 40% in energy costs over the life of the system. Depending on your current load/overhead you may realize significant cost savings very quickly.
