In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

The aim of this publication is to help readers with the decision
to purchase and install an Earth Energy System (EES). The subject is
complex, and the decision depends on many variables. As a result,
this guide cannot provide enough information to evaluate a potential
system fully, nor is it a “how-to” manual for the installation, operation
and maintenance of a system. Prospective buyers should thus seek out qualified advice and assistance to supplement the information
provided here. They should also contact local utility and government
agencies to ensure that their new system will meet all relevant
electrical codes, as well as building and site regulations.
