Geothermal Plant Supplies ~20% of Hawaii’s Electricity

Puna Geothermal Venture has a contract with Hawaii Electric & Light (HELCO) to supply the utility with 30 megawatts (MW) of electricity through 2030 sourced from the company’s geothermal plant located within Mt.

The steam is used to drive the plant’s generators.
