Geothermal Energy

  1. 1. Geothermal Energy (Renewable) By: Connor Laehn
  2. 2. How electricity is made Hot water is piped from ground into a geothermal plant, then it meets the flash tank which water is changed into steam by a condenser, then the steam turns a turbine which drive generators to produce electricity. Its renewable so you would always get it and have it.
  3. 3. Comparing Costs • Geothermal it costs $23,250- $40,000 to get put in most of the cost is from digging the hole in the ground. • Fire Place would be $140 a month • Natural Gas would be about $85 a month • Personally I would choose Geothermal because it is the most efficient but you have to live long term in a house.
  4. 4. Advantages/Disadvantages Some advantages would be that as long as you always have water you will get the heat from it. It also keeps a house consistently hot. The benefits are that after along time you won’t be paying as much for heat. Some disadvantages is the cost because to get it costs $23,250 and for a mid class person it would take 13 years to pay off. So you would have to commit to where ever you live. And if a pipe breaks you would have to dig the whole thing up.
  5. 5. The End
