Landmark Legislation Could Put Geothermal Back on Track for California

Quote
“New geothermal energy on the grid will help stabilize and balance California’s renewable portfolio by adding needed diversity to its reliance on intermittent resources like wind and solar.”

I have often argued that all the current infrastructure in a nuclear power plant, minus the problems of radionuclide contamination and excessive embrittlement and corrosion of pipes, valves and pumps, is made to order, and will have a much increased MTBF since it is already designed to handle 600 degrees Centigrade steam making, if it is used to run a geothermal power plant instead. Of course you have the cost of reaching the source geothermal heat with piping deep into the ground, but those costs are insignificant compared with the costs and dangers to the environment of nuclear power plants.

Let's take those giant steam turbines out of the nuclear power plants and put them to work in geothermal power plants. It will save us millions of dollars and provide another nail in the coffin of dirty energy sources from fossil and nuclear fuels.

We could even get the nuclear power plant operators to go along with it by incentivizing them to switch to geothermal with government aid in the decommissioning of the nuclear power poison white elephants.

If we want our children to have a chance to live by regaining human harmony with the biosphere, we must strive to achieve the total demand destruction of fossil and nuclear fuels.
