Finally the Canadian media takes notice with the recent coverage on a project by DEEP Earth Energy Production, likely Canada's first geothermal power project seeing the light of day in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Having worked hard over the past 2-3 years on getting Canadian media to take notice of geothermal, it seems like the ice has been broken. Earlier this week, we reported on DEEP Earth Energy Production, a developer in Saskatchewan, Canada is planning Canada’s first geothermal power plant.

As part of coverage, Bloomberg too notice and following that Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Canada’s national broadcaster.

Kirsten Marcia, CEO of DEEP was interviewed on CBC Radio on May 28, 2013 – Link

I was interviewed by phone from Iceland – Link

And today a TV interview with Kirsten followed on CTV News in Saskatchewan – Link

So now the project needs to deliver on its promises, lets hope for the best.
