FAQ #9: Will you build a power plant to generate electricity from the hot, circulated water as part of this project?
No. The Newberry EGS Demonstration Project aims to demonstrate improved technology for creating geothermal reservoirs and extracting heat from the earth in locations where high temperatures can be reached by conventional drilling techniques.
If the EGS demonstration is successful, further study, environmental analysis, and financial planning will be required before the next steps of building a power plant to generate electricity could be considered.
