After two successful wells drilled, Oregon project now looking for PPA
Klamath Basin Geopower's CEO stated that both wells drilled are performing as expected and they are looking on commissioning a plant of at least 20MW by 2017.
Good news for Oregon, were a local newspaper has reported that the geothermal project done by Klamath Basin Geopower seems to be ready to go to the next phase. The local newspaper has interviewed Bill Honjas, president and CEO of Klamath Basin Geopower regarding the ongoing developments of the project. “The project is ongoing. The last well was a good well. Now we’re down to the business of getting the power sold.”
The same source states that both wells have high temperatures and “Plans call for building and commissioning a minimum 20 megawatt power facility by 2017. Based on average estimates, each megawatt provides enough power for about 1,000 single-family homes. If power is produced, Honjas previously said it can be distributed to markets in Oregon and California from power switching stations.”
