Geothermal energy growth

A survey released by the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) shows continued growth in the number of new geothermal power projects under development in the United States, a 20% increase since January of this year. The report identified 103 projects underway including 2 in Arizona. One is in the Clifton hot springs area with Arizona Public Service in phase 1 work on a electric power project of 2 MW that could expand incrementally 2 MW at a time up to 20 MW.

The second project is vaguely identified as Northern Arizona University having received GRED II funding and completing preliminary studies.
