Blundell plant

In a geothermal generating plant, ground water thousands of feet below the surface is heated by nearby magma. The hydro thermal reservoir at Blundell lies 3,000 feet below the Earth's surface and contains water at more than 500°F. A well brings the high-pressure, heated water to the surface, where it “flashes” to steam, then is used to power a steam turbine and generator.

Blundell is a fully renewable, zero-discharge facility. There is no pollution of the atmosphere because of the absence of combustion by-products.
