NEWS BRIEF: BLM approves geothermal project
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Winnemucca District, Black Rock Field Office has approved a proposal submitted by US Geothermal Nevada LLC to drill a new geothermal production well at the San Emidio Geothermal Facility, located 90 miles northeast of Reno and 12 miles south of the town of Gerlach in the San Emidio Desert basin.
The operation is currently a 14.7-megawatt binary cycle geothermal plant that has been producing reliable green energy since 1987. The facility sits on 40 acres of joint private land and BLM administered lands.
“With the purchase of the building in Fallon, the business is poised to grow even further as we continue to offer the best customer service in the field to our clients,” said Kelly Campbell, who launched Buttsup Duck Designs in 2008.
