Let's look at who's talking about Geothermal
"See how we can generate clean, renewable energy from hot water sources deep beneath the Earth's surface. The video highlights the basic principles at work in geothermal energy production, and illustrates three different ways the Earth's heat can be converted into electricity". Courtesy US DOE.
“With subterranean resources flowing 24-7, without interlude, geothermal production can take place at all hours and under almost any weather conditions. Geothermal is reliable, abundant, and efficient. While drilling is expensive, the heat source itself is free. According to the Geothermal Energy Association, 39 countries could supply 100 percent of their electricity needs from geothermal energy, yet only 6 to 7 percent of the world’s potential geothermal power has been tapped."
California needs clean energy after sundown.
Is the answer under our feet? LA Times
January 2020. "After years of playing third fiddle to solar and wind power, geothermal energy is poised to start growing again in California.Three local energy providers have signed contracts this month for electricity from new geothermal power plants, one in Imperial County near the Salton Sea and the other in Mono County along the Eastern Sierra. The new plants will be the first geothermal facilities built in California in nearly a decade — potentially marking a long-awaited turning point for a technology that could play a critical role in the state’s transition to cleaner energy sources."
"Once the 200-room hotel is in full operation, about 1,200 guests a day are expected. The hotel will be among the largest in the country outside an urban area. Halldór states that Efri-Reykir has a great potential for tourist services. The area is on the popular Golden Circle route, near Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir hot spring area. Numerous cabins are nearby, there is plenty of hot water, and green solutions are being emphasized."
