What is Geothermal Energy?<br />Definition: the use of thermal energy beneath the Earth’s surface.<br />It can be used for electrical use and also for home heating.<br />The heat inside of the Earth originally came from volcanic activity and solar rays being absorbed when the Earth was formed.<br />
Geothermal Electricity<br />Definition: Electricity generated from geothermal energy.<br />Geothermal plants run around the clock, which increase the reliability value of them.Which solar and wind are not able to do.<br />The three types of geothermal plants are dry steam, flash steam, and binary cycle plants.<br />
Dry Steam Plants<br />A power plant where steam is released from the pressure of a deep reservoir, through a rock catcher, and then past the power generator turbines.<br />They send the Earth’s crust water down to the mantle where it is heated.<br />Then it turns to steam which is released through vents and the steam will then turn the turbines creating electricity.<br />
