About US Geothermal
US Geothermal is a renewable energy development company focused on geothermal energy initially in the Pacific Northwest and has a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement with the Idaho Power Company for delivery of an average of 10MW of electric power per month from the Company"s Raft River project. The Phase One power plant at Raft River is expected to be the first geothermal power plant in Idaho and the Pacific Northwest. Raft River is scheduled to begin production of electric power in 2006, bringing Idaho customers the benefits of a clean, green, renewable energy source.
