While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    A LAKE OF NEW ENERGY

    Geothermal Energy: Hot Pocket; California's Salton Sea lake sits above superhot temperatures that could be used to generate electricity, which a local utility hopes to do.

    Jack Willoughby and Michael Vallo, May 3, 2014 (Barron’s)

    “Salton Sea, a lake formed in 1905 by a flooding Colorado River, may be the launch site for geothermal energy in the U.S. The shallow, salty lake sits atop the San Andreas fault, 226 feet below sea level. About a mile beneath Salton's southern tip, the earth burns at 680 degrees Fahrenheit…The Salton Sea Restoration & Renewable Energy Initiative…estimates it will boost U.S. geothermal capacity by 50%, or 1,700 megawatts, over 20 years…A local utility, Imperial Irrigation District, owns the land…Imperial hopes to use profits to restore Salton Sea, which is receding…The utility is seeking a partner…The tricky part will be to find viable locations for injection wells, which can be several miles deep…After that, the plants are essentially self-sufficient. Hot water is pumped to the surface, where it turns to steam, driving turbines connected to generators. The steam is then converted to water and pumped back into the ground…[A] 50-megawatt plant will cost $300 million. And California must approve building a $2.5 billion transmission line that would plug the facility into the grid…” click here for more
