Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funded. Lehigh County has installed a ground source heat pump (GSHP) system in a new environmental center at the Lehigh County nature preserve. Since the location of the proposed GSHP system is in a developing area of multi-use buildings there was minimal to no aesthetic impact from the installation process. The building for which the GSHP system provides heating and cooling is a newly constructed building. Land disturbance had occurred prior to project implementation of the GSHP system.
