A power plant in remote southern Idaho generates electricity with water heated by the remnants of ancient volcanoes. Water is forced underground where it heats up. The accumulated heat is used to run turbines that generate electricity. Geothermal energy is a renewable resource than can be harnessed for the production of electricity 24 hours a day, year round, potentially for centuries without adding energy to the system.
