When did we start using geothermal energy?

    Humans started using geothermal energy as early as 10,000 years ago in North America. Paleo-Indians moved to live close to hot springs, which they used for cooking, warmth, cleansing and the healing properties of the minerals in the springs. Because of the importance of these hot springs, they were safe, neutral zones where warring was not allowed between rival tribes. It wasn’t until 1807 that European settlers came across these hot springs and they’re life affirming properties. They are still major tourist attractions to this day.
