Lake County California is the home of a the Calistoga Power Plant. This power plant consists of a geothermal steam powered generator and associated steam fields located in northern California at The Geysers. Calpine is North America's largest producer of clean, renewable geothermal power. The Calpine Geysers facility is a portfolio of 15 geothermal power plants.

More than 330 active production wells provide steam that is piped directly into turbines to generate electricity. These plants supply approximately 725,000 kilowatts of reliable base load electricity to northern California's power grid. Theoretically, if all of this power were used in Sonoma County, it would provide 100% of the power needs using clean, renewable, zero carbon energy as it's source. 



Geothermal power produces minimal air emissions. In fact, The American Lung Association of the Bay Area selected Calpine Corporation and its Geysers geothermal operation for the 2004 Clean Air Award for Technology Development.

Any county or region can accomplish a goal of locally produced clean, green energy. Using geothermal energy is one way to reach this goal.

If each local region or county developed their geothermal energy potential, there would be enough energy just from this source to provide for all of the electricity needs for the entire region, globally. Iceland and the Geysers plant in Northern California provides the whole world a living example of what can be done.

Steam can power industrial machinery directly, without any electricity conversion. Here is an example of steam powering huge industrial pumps. 



Granted, these huge pumps were originally powered by coal which was burned to produce steam, but there is no reason why this equipment could not be powered by geothermal steam energy directly.

Steam can also be generated and create electricity from waste heat coming from industrial processes and manufacturing facilities that produce large quantities of heat through boilers, etc.
