How much geothermal energy does Washington use?



  1. 0 Votes

    As of January, 2008, the state of Washington was producing zero megawatts of geothermal power – this despite the fact that Washington has considerable potential to tap geothermal energy as a power source. Washington is right at the edge of a “hot zone” of geothermal activity that extends up and down the western edge of the United States. In addition to being readily available in Washington, geothermal energy has many other advantages. Not only is it a renewable resource, but it does not have the same problems with intermittency that exist in the wind and solar energy industries, and geothermal projects take up a relatively small amount of land. Like many other parts of the country, Washington is ripe to develop this power source in earnest – but has yet to really get started in earnest.
