Can Las Vegas be powered by geothermal plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    Nevada has recently been undergoing a geothermal boom. There are hot springs and wells all over the state, and 10 plants all across the state. There aren’t any geothermal plants near Las Vegas, however, and while there are some hot springs in the area they are comparatively scarce.

    Nevada is the world’s 9th largest producer of geothermal energy in the world (if considered a country unto itself).  Nevada currently produces about 25% of it’s state-wide energy using geothermal power, and they have plans of expanding.  It is quite likely that they can power Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Eureka, and every other city and town in the state using this clean, renewable energy source.  Nevada currently has 86 planned or developing geothermal energy expansion sites throughout the state, and not only is the potential for energy high, so is the potential for job creation, an estimated 1400 jobs created with the proposal of the 86 energy sites.
