Sparse use is practical. Where it breaks down is in the cooling mode, and too many facilities are dissipating heat into the same geologic member. The heat fro mone facility is carried to the location of the other facility.
Eventually, enough heat from enough facilities dissipate enough heat into the geologic member to create a steady-state equilibrium temperature.
Heat can only travel from a higher temperature to a lower temperature. Tricks can be imployed, like forcing a "coolant" through a nozzle, creating a change in pressure of the "coolant" which changes it's specific capacity to hold heat. In an air conditioning system, high pressured "coolant" absorbes heat, then is forced through a nozzle where on the other side the pressure is much less and the heat capacity is reduced, causing the heat absorbed in the high pressure side of the nozzle to be dissipated in the low pressure side of the nozzle.
Ultimately, the surrounding environment can dissipate only so much heat. If enough facilities dissipate heat into the same thermal reservoir, then the temperature difference becomes negligible, and heat transfer ceases, resulting in a thermal equilibruim state.
Geothermal cooling is very complicated.
Thus, it isn't free, like these dupes think.
First of all;, systems are designed to match the loop field to the particular system design for particular buildings.

Second, no one said geothermal was free.

Cluster, dufus, meaning multiple buildings proximal to one another, dufus. One building will work, depending on the transmissivity of the aquifer they are exchanging heat with and its recharge distributive rate. This is called a "convection" system.
If the geologic member does not have a flow of water, then the system would be called a "conduction" system, and be much, much less effective.
Referencing your example, if a building up-dip was doing the same thing, the heat from the building up-dip would be transferred by mass flow to the places where the holes were dug for the building down-dip trying to dissipate heat into the same formation member... dufus.
You see, the water in the aquifer of the up-dip building will carry the heat from the up-dip building to the down-dip building... dufus.
Now that you have a very elementary explanation, you can construct your thermodynamic model and see that heat doesn't just disappear. It has to go somewhere, you f**k*ng idiot.
Geothermal ground loops have nothing to do with the aquifers.

the right wing media love drones. Republican congressmen love drones. Republicans loves drones.

Absolutely, but unlike you, I understand what the term "liberal" means.

You, on the other hand, are willing to surrender your freedom to the state.

<quoted text> I have a geothermal system here at the house. One intake well and to discharge wells. It works very well. However for the most part the new geothermal systems use a closed loop configuration using anti-freeze in place of water. This will cut down significantly on the bleed over between systems.
Are state permits required for the wells?

The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday showed a slim majority of Americans have a favorable opinion of the policies that President Barack Obama will pursue in his second term, nearly matching the percentage of respondents who have an unfavorable view of the agenda that congressional Republicans will push over the next four years.

Fifty-two percent of American adults said they have a favorable opinion of Obama's second term policies, compared with 43 percent who have an unfavorable opinion — a much larger base of support than Republicans on Capitol Hill can claim.

The poll found that 55 percent of Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the policies that the congressional GOP will push for over the next four years, while just 36 percent have a favorable opinion.

Solar Energy is free in the same sense that oil is free where all you have to do is bring it to the surface.

Um... nope. It comes to the surface all by itself, honey. Once it gets to the surface it heats shit up pretty much at will. Once you cover up whatever you don't want the sun to heat up for free, that stuff cools down. Magic.

But here's the real trick: how do you teach a bunch of morons that just because you're already on one path you should go back and go down another, no matter how painful or redundant it feels to go backwards for a time? How do you teach people who are fundamentally stupid that the exertions of those who came before them may only be of value in appreciating the scope of a particular mistake? Fossil fuel use is a mistake. It's been useful, essentially free, for nearly a century and it took a lot of pressure off the whales you gotta admit. But the show's over now, and, as usual, America will be the last one to admit it; we're suckers for lost causes.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) on Sunday defended the administration’s use of armed drone strikes, saying there was “plenty of oversight.”

“Monthly I have my committee go to the CIA to review them. I as chairman review every single air strike we use in the war on terror, both on the civilian and the military side when it comes to terrorist strikes,” said Rogers on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” There’s plenty of oversight here.

Rogers said that many aspects of the government’s drone program had been misrepresented in the media, in particular claims that there was a “kill list” of Americans linked to al Qaeda.

“There’s not some American list somewhere overseas for targeting - that does not exist,” said the chairman.“I think there’s been some sensationalism, this is a serious matter, but I do think the oversight rules have been consistent.”

Forgive me, but geothermal energy, ALL energy, is solar energy and is, therefore, by definition, free. All energy in our solar system comes from the sun or the Son as the christian-little-minds like to call him. The sun goes out, the planet goes out, simple as that. What "costs" there are are imposed by people. Little people. Merchants trying to make a buck; to get ahead. Don't put up with it folks. If someone comes to you with a price for what you know to be free in what's alleged to be a "free" country, knock them down and beat them to death with a shovel or hoe. Not your favorite hoe, one you don't use much anymore. Remember, all the really important people are over at Galt's Gulch marshaling their pizza-making talents, so, technically, this is an internal matter to be settled among the takers.

City permit for the drilling of the wells only. Mine has been working for almost 30 years. In the thermal loop system the continuous pipe used is basically the same gas line piping. There are no underground connections. A Ditchwitch machine is used to bury the line. The installer would be liable although I have never heard of one leaking.

So, uh, jerkwad. How's the cripple doin' today? you clean his bag for him yet? Squeeze it, I dare ya'... g'head.... do it... But, in the interests of conversation, um, how many folks you reckon it'll take to monitor 300,000,000 people? Bet the job description reads: "Must like eyes to bleed." Stop lookin' for the bogeyman under every rock, he'll find you eventually.
