WESTERVILLE, Ohio — National Ground Water Association (NGWA) Chief Executive Officer Kevin McCray, CAE, has issued a statement on U.S. President Barack Obama's comments on energy policy during the State of the Union address, according to a press release.

The State of the Union address took place on Tuesday, Jan. 28, noted the release.

"One piece of an 'all-of-the-above' energy policy must be geothermal heat pump systems," McCray said. "Geothermal heat pump systems are a clean, renewable, thermal energy technology that creates thousands of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing, distribution and installation sectors. They can be used effectively almost anywhere in the United States and are available 24/7 drawing on the thermal energy resources under our feet."
