Does anybody know the policy regarding installing Geothermal energy plants in your backyard in Canberra?

By James-T-Kirk 19 June 2010 22

In this era of saving energy, I have been looking at various energy producing options available to the Kirk household.

Solar – cells on my roof, limiting access to allow replacement of broken roof tiles.
Nuclear – Hmmmm glowing in the dark simply does not appeal.
Geothermal… now thats an idea!

I know that the local council gets the screaming heebies if you put in your own bore, but I can’t find anywhere that says I can’t install my own geothermal plant… I think I just have to start drilling….

Advice???

What’s Your opinion?

OK

Drilling was started a while ago, and I am at about 130 feet. The neighbors are being really good about it – no serious impediments, but at about 6 feet I could a cable… The phone still works, and the lights are on, so who cares!

I need to get more pipe to drill with…..

What sort of system you planning or running? Water or air or high pressure/high temp liquid salt or what?
