    The ATES System is an example of using technology in harmony with the natural cycles of the Earth. It takes the idea of geothermal heating/cooling systems, which date back to humans living in underground caves, to a new institutional level. It just makes so much sense, as do most alternative energy ideas. As the price of fossil fuels skyrockets with dwindling supply over the next century, ideas such as this will look really good in theory and in practice. Right now, with our “still cheap” oil, the price tag scares most away from such technology.
