Jay Egg

Jay's passion for geothermal air-conditioning and heating started during a repair to his own home air-conditioning system 1989. Frustrated by the extreme tropical climate which had added to the premature failure of his air-conditioning system, he modified his home air conditioner to become a ground water-cooled system. Jay founded EggGeothermal in 1990 to provide geothermal HVAC systems. As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, EggGeothermal entered into a new age of acceptance. Jay currently focuses his professional efforts on geothermal consulting, writing, and speaking engagements. Among his clients are federal, state and local governments, developers, associations, and private entities.

But electronic communication is one part of the equation.  There is also the concept of “Thermal Communication”.

The household appliances in our “Celestia Home of the Future” will prompt, "Do you really want to start the washing machine now, while the shower is on and the dishwasher is running? Please allow me [the smart M2M system] to start this for you later, when energy and water consumption can be optimized, saving 1.3 kWh of peak load energy consumption."  This simple logic and communication between machines, homes and communities will defer infrastructure costs for building of power plants that could be averted.
