Last day to comment on new geothermal plant plan


The last day to comment on a proposed new geothermal plant’s draft Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Impact Report is Jan. 30, according to federal officials.

The plant is proposed for a site near the existing geothermal plant and will more than double the geothermal power generated by the current plants. The project has the potential to bring jobs and a steady stream of tax revenues and royalties to the region, but it also has the potential to impact recreation, affect water and wildlife in negative ways, and to potentially increase air pollution.
