Salton Sea geothermal energy
There are eleven operating geothermal power plants operating near the Salton Sea in southern California. The lake is in a region that has a high level of geothermal energy, with an estimated 2,400 megawatts (MW) of power available or expected to become accessible as the lake shrinks. About 450 MW is generated by the existing power plants, ten of which are owned by CalEnergy and one by EnergySource.
An Australian company, Controlled Thermal Resources, plans to construct a new geothermal plant in the late 2010s with a power generation capacity of 280 MW, expandable up to 750 MW.
