Ormat and Nevada Geothermal Power have started drilling for the development at the joint project at Crump Geyser, a power project of up to 30MW in capacity in Nevada.

News from Nevada report that “drilling for a geothermal development well at the Crump Geyser north of Adel is under way.

It is the first of three possible wells developers Ormat Nevada and the Nevada Geothermal Power Company hope will lead to a power plant with a generation capacity of up to 30 megawatts, enough electricity to power about 30,000 homes.

Officials previously said first-phase construction of the geothermal plant is expected to cost $120 million. The plant is expected to be in service before the end of 2013 so developers can qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which expires in 2013.”
