Here in San Diego, we have not only a lot of sunshine for solar energy, but also an exceptional potential for geothermal energy based on the heat that flows up from deep inside the earth.
Last spring, SD350’s Peg Mitchell was given a tour of the John Featherstone Facility, a geothermal energy plant located within the Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resource Area in the Imperial Valley. Peg has written about what she learned for SD350’s October column in the San Diego Free Press.
In case you’d like to learn a little more, we’ve shown below a few presentation slides provided by a company developing this renewable energy resource in our region.
You can link here to Peg’s report in SD350’s monthly article in the environment section of San Diego Free Press.
These slides and many more comprise a visual array used for the Borrego Springs Energy Day presentation about the history and potential of geothermal energy in the Imperial Valley. If you’re interested in seeing the Energy Day slides, you can link to it here: 2015 Borrego Energy Day Presentation
