Pumping Water into a (Dormant) Volcano to Make Power ? Newest Geothermal Project #green

Pumping Water into a (Dormant) Volcano to Make Power ? Newest Geothermal Project #green

In this newest plan — to commence mid summer 2012 — 24 million gallons of water will be pumped into the side of an inactive volcano (Newberrry Volcano, located about 20 miles south of Bend, Ore) in central Oregon State. Once the water penetrates to the right depth, it will come in contact with hot, magma-heated rocks. There, it is hoped, the newly heated and pressurized water (water increases its pressure as it is heated) will return to the surface where its heat energy and pressure can be harnessed to make “cheap, clean electricity”.
