Geothermal – DEEP Begins Drilling at its Geothermal Power Plant in Saskatchewan – Renewable Energy Magazine, at the heart of clean energy journalism

DEEP’s long term strategy is to build hundreds of megawatts of geothermal power facilities with a vision of a cleaner energy future for the province supported by SaskPower’s goal to reduce emissions from 2005 levels by 40 percent by 2030. The proposed facility would generate renewable, zero emission, baseload power from a hot (120˚C) aquifer. The produced electricity will be sold under an existing Power Purchase Agreement with SaskPower and will generate roughly the power required by 5,000 homes and offset about 27,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, equal to removing an estimated 7,400 cars off the roads annually.
