See on Scoop.itGreen Energy Technologies & Development

Senator Jon Tester is introducing a bill to create jobs and increase America’s energy security by better utilizing Montana’s geothermal energy resources.

 

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

The bill also directs the Department of Energy to establish a revolving loan fund for energy developers to drill wells during the exploratory phase of geothermal energy projects.

 

Advances in geothermal technology have the potential to produce more than half of the current U.S. electricity production. […] Montana has more than 50 geothermal areas and at least 15 high-temperature sites.

 

Tester’s Geothermal Exploration and Technology Act is cosponsored by Senator Mark Begich (D-Alaska).
