May 25, 2012 | By HPAC Magazine
The Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (CGC) has announced that it will offer a new geothermal quality program designation for geothermal loop installers. The CGC Loop Installer accreditation is valid for both residential and commercial installations. According to CGC, the course is meant to protect the integrity of both residential and commercial installations over time and to promote best ground water protection techniques. “CGC Loop Installer accreditation within the CGC Global Quality GeoExchange Program is long overdue. We have tried hard to introduce both ground water protection training and ground loop protection techniques for geothermal loop installers over the past six years. We are now in a position to introduce such training and consequent accreditation and we are delighted about this,” said Denis Tanguay, CGC president & CEO.
