About Geothermal Energy


Geothermal energy is taken from the inner layers of the earth. To make this type of energy is very expensive because making it requires making a power plant to get steam from deep under the Earth. Geothermal plantations can run out of steam due to the changing of temperatures. Not a lot of people use this energy source because they can only make plantations where geological features are found easily. How we use it is we use the heat and steam from the Earth to turns a turbine that spins a generator to generate electricity that we can use.
