Geo-exchange Utility

The Gibsons District Energy Utility (GDEU) is a sustainable utility that utilizes renewable energy in the form of heat from the earth. The system consists of infrastructure owned and operated by the Town (pumphouse, distribution lines, geo-energy fields, service connections) and privately owned heat pumps.

  • The first phase of this utility supports 58 homes in the Parkland neighbourhood. During 2019/2020, the Town will be exploring options for the future of the utility.
