I agree with Robert that the geothermal systems at Eno Commons are excellent. 
Imagine quiet air conditioning with NO compressor noise!! One caveat: since 
it's a less used technology, our service provider was the only one in the area 
and so had a monopoly, which he made good use of. Service calls were VERY 
expensive and tended to negate the cost savings that the energy efficient 
system provided.

Every house in Eno Commons has geothermal heat pumps.  However, Jessie 
Handforth Kome who now lives at Eastern Village Cohousing in Silver 
Spring, Maryland might be a better contact.  She convinced us that 
geothermal was the the way to go and we have been pleased with that
