Geothermal Plant Slated for California

August 13, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] CalEnergy Operating Corp. is working on plans to build California’s first major geothermal plant in 16 years near the south end of the Salton Sea. If the California Energy Commission approves the application, the new geothermal plant will generate about 185 megawatts, nearly four times as much energy as the next largest geothermal operation in the state. CalEnergy’s proposed project, which could cost US$350 million, is planned for an 80-acre parcel six miles northwest of Calipatria in the unincorporated area of Imperial County, according to the state licensing application filed last month.
