This geothermal water can be harnessed for plants that use the steam to power turbines and create electricity. There are several kinds of these geothermal power plants (dry, flash and binary) and all of them are clean and efficient alternative energy sources. This is all in addition to the traditional benefits of geothermal reservoirs, hot springs and geysers such as medicine, cooking, domestic heating and good old-fashioned rest and relaxation. So, add geothermal energy to the list of other alternative and renewable energy sources including solar power, wind energy, nuclear power and biofuel. And, keep in mind that the top three advantages to geothermal energy are as follows:
1) It’s always there. The fuel source is located directly under the site. Plus, Geothermal power plants run 24 hours a day and seven days a week regardless of the weather conditions or sociopolitical climate.
3) Unlike oil and related fossil fuels, no speculator can interfere with the prices of geothermal water. The almost inexhaustible resource allows us to provide electricity and save the money that would be spent on importing fuel in this fragile economic era. Geothermal power plants can also help undeveloped countries grow through the continually amazing utility of electricity.
