Does geothermal power work in the winter time?

    Yes. Geothermal energy works in the winter. Basically, large geothermal power plants are placed at sites where there is constant heat coming from under the earth’s surface. This heat comes from inside the earth, and is enough to heat water into steam which pushes a turbine to produce electricity. If you’re talking about a geothermal heating and cooling pump for your house, that to will work in the winter. Such systems rely on the constant temperature of the earth beneath a certain depth. They incorporate a heat exchanger to either raise or lower the ambient air temperature to the desired temperature.
