The energy in the Earth

Geothermal energy is heating up in Nevada!

In July 2016, US Geothermal began drilling at their San Emidio project in Nevada. “They drilled to a depth of 1,000 feet and encountered high bottom hole temperatures and high temperature gradients. Both of those findings are indicators of a deeper, active geothermal system, the company said, adding that, if productive zones are encountered, the wells will be tested to determine resource temperature and production characteristics in the area.

 

Phase I of the San Emidio project was completed in 2012, when an existing 3.6 MW plant was replaced with a more efficient 9 MW power plant.”
