GEOTHERMAL

GEOTHERMAL Geothermal energy gives us a steady supply of electrical power, with minimal environmental impact! Here is the basic process. Water, in underground reservoirs, is heated to high temperatures by magma. Production wells, drilled up to 10,000 feet below the earth’s surface, tap into this hot fluid. Under its own pressure, the fluid flows through these wells toward the surface. As it travels, the pressure lessens, causing a small amount to become steam. Together, the hot fluid and steam move […]
