Does anyone have information about geothermal heating solutions in the Sud Ouest - preferably in or around Cahors but anyone in the Lot or Lot et Garonne.
We have done a lot of research as to the suitability of our property but are really struggling to find some one experienced to give us quotes.

There seems to be a number of plumbers who claim to have knowledge but once you start to ask questions they really have no idea.

Because we have quite a bit of flat land we are looking for an across ground rather than deep drill solution but one of the big issues for us is how we install underfloor heating under existing tiled floors. This seems to stump most. We are loathe to replace the floor as the tiles are old and irreplaceable in terms of size and colour.

ANy thoughts?

No thoughts; only sympathies.

I live in an old watermill and have been trying to find someone for 10 years to install what's needed to harness the 125kW/day I have calculated I have available from head & flow from the millrace and stream etc. & haven't been able to find anyone prepared to take on the civil works as well as the electrical or even anyone prepared to come and have a look! I know where to get the equipment and everything involved (ex-engineer, me) - I just can't find anyone interested and I can't do the heavy (civil) works.

At the moment, in France, it seems that unless you want solar panels, no-one's very interested. But have you tried consulting EDF or ADEPE?

But there is a guy associated with the English language Connexion newspaper who's down in your neck of the woods who might be able to help. Can't remember his name but if you do a bit of research, you should be able to find out.

Good luck!
