Geothermal Power Plant Flyby Tour
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has compiled a list of the operating geothermal power plants listed on the Geothermal Energy Association website, as well as GEA’s 2013 US Geothermal Power Production and Development Report (http://geo-energy.org/pdf/reports/2013AnnualUSGeothermalPowerProductionandDevelopmentReport_Final.pdf). The latitude and longitude coordinates for each location has been estimated by NREL using a variety of sources including, but not limited to, press releases, operator websites, outside reporting agencies, and conference papers. Each location was plotted using Google Earth. A flyby tour was then created in Google Earth and organized by the year that the power plant came online (GEA Start Year).
The list of operating US geothermal power plants and Google Earth tour was updated July 2014.
