Geothermal is becoming hot topic again
Two articles in prominent East Coast papers on geothermal energy. Not only do these papers have large readership, they both are read by folks who make a lot of decisions about energy, investments, and funding.
The Washington Post offered a lengthy detailed reporter's personal story of installing a ground source heat pump.
and the New York Times highlighted the geothermal resources in Idaho as the third largest potential in the nation. The Idaho Geological Survey is a partner in the AZGS-led State Geothermal Data project. Idaho is looking to reduce royalty rates on state lands to be competitive with those on federal lands, and to increase the length of state leases while companies evaluate its potential.
