Interesting idea, but I'm not sure if it would apply to other insurnace companies. Sure, your reducing the risk of fire be replacing a flammable/expolsive fuel for electricity.  But you could still have an electrical fire, not to mention that a leak in you geothermal system could cause water damage in the basement.

geome,

No, I have a 500 gallon propane tank that powers a 15 KW generator (outside) and a hot water tank (in basement), when the utility power goes out for longer than a day.

Regards,

Masoud
