US Geothermal Set to Submit San Emidio II Application to Bureau of Land Management

Renewable Energy World: U.S. Geothermal plans to submit an application to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to build its expanded San Emidio phase II geothermal plant, U.S. Geothermal President Douglas Glaspey said in a March 10 4Q16 earnings call.

The company in February said that an updated reservoir model for the project in Nevada resulted in a significant increase in the potential size of the San Emidio II reservoir of up to 47 MW, from an estimated 10 MW.

“An application for project development of this larger facility will be submitted to the Bureau of Land Management this month to start the environmental assessment process to get approval to fully develop the well field and build the larger power plant at San Emidio,” Glaspey said.
