Geothermal Greatness

By Benjamin Lopez

Reasons Why Geothermal Energy is a Good Energy Source

  • Almost entirely emission free
  • Zero carbon
  • The process can scrub out sulfur that might have otherwise been released
  • No fuel required (no mining or transportation)
  • Not subject to the same fluctuations as solar or wind
  • Smallest land footprint of any major power source
  • Virtually limitless supply
  • Inherently simple and reliable
  • Can provide base load or peak power
  • Already cost competitive in some areas
  • Could be built underground
  • Some level of geothermal energy available most places
  • New technologies show promise to utilize lower temperatures

Geothermal Greatness

My conclusion on Geothermal energy

Geothermal energy is a great energy source because it helps people all over the world, it has zero carbonation, virtually has limitless supply, and it has the smallest land footprint. You can build it underground and you can use it to heat or cool your home. It has been proven that geothermal energy has one of the lowest prices out of all the alternative energy resources. That is my conclusion on Geothermal Energy.
