Geothermal Energy

Balanced Portfolio

Geothermal plays an important role in the development of a balanced, renewable energy portfolio. Just as a 401K should be filled with an array of investments to increase profitably, the same remains true for renewable energy portfolios.

Geothermal power output can remain consistent nearly 24 hours a day, unlike solar or wind power, which must wait for the sun to shine or the wind to blow.  This means a geothermal plant with a smaller capacity than a solar or wind plant can provide more actual, delivered electricity.
