Geothermal Power Facts

  • It's clean – no fossil fuels are burned.

  • It's reliable – geothermal plants have a high capacity factor, up to 96%.

  • It's cost-effective – today's cost of geothermal electricity ranges from $0.05 to $0.08 per kilowatt-hour, and technology improvements are steadily lowering that range.

  • The debt for The Geysers has been paid off; thus, only the operating and maintenance costs remain.
