Return to TopGeothermal

Nevada ranks second only to California in the development and use of its geothermal resources for producing electricity. According to the Nevada Commission on Mineral Resources, there are currently 14 plants at 10 locations in the state with a total rated capacity of 236 megawatts (MW). Total state resources capacity has been estimated at 2,000 MW by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Department of Energy's Geothermal Technologies Program supports the U.S. geothermal industry in providing diversity, and therefore security, in domestic energy supply options. This support also helps the industry maintain its technical edge in world energy markets, thereby enhancing exports of U.S. goods and services and U.S. job growth. DOE works in partnership with U.S. industry to establish geothermal energy as an economically competitive contributor to the U.S. energy supply.
