Geothermal Energy in Beachlea!
The Mayor's Big Descision
What is geothermal energy and how does it work?
Some energy plants use steam from reservoirs to generate power. Other plants use hot water to boil a certain and working fluid that vaporizes, causing the turbine to generate electricity. Hot water close to the Earth's surface is used as a heat source. Uses for the heat that are direct include heating buildings, plants in greenhouses, drying crops, heating water at fish farms, and other industrial processes.
A few downsides to this electricity are the use of water. If the whole world was transferred to geothermal energy, we could have a short water supply, which is never good. Also, it takes up some space which is not always easy to get. Though there faults to this power, I believe that it is the best thing that could be installed in Beachlea.
Where is it being installed? Who is going to use it?
Why is it being put into Beachlea? When is it being placed in?
The town is getting a new renovation for the geothermal energy plant to fit within the next month. We hope to get more details on this exciting event and wish the townspeople of Beachlea good luck using their new energy.
See next issue for more details on this big event!
