Video on the unique “geothermal” Chena Hot Springs Resort in Alaska
A great video on the unique Chena Hot Springs near Fairbanks, Alaska and its utilisation of geothermal energy.
We have reported about the unique Chena Hot Springs Resort near Fairbanks in Alaska before. An interesting showcase on the impact geothermal energy can have for small communities, and here for a tourist destination.
The owner of the resort, Bernie Karl has been incredibly creative in developing a unique set up that utilises geothermal energy not only for power generation but also for heating.
In a recent piece in the Alaska Dispatch News, Bernie Karl describes Chena Hot Springs being in the middle of a 20-year development plan, which already includes a geothermal plant that began operating in 2006. It creates enough electricity to power the entire resort.
