HR County To Talk With Geothermal Firm

Hood River County Commissioners told staff to go ahead and keep talking with a company that would like to do testing for a geothermal energy project on County forestlands, but with a dose of skepticism.  GeoX Energy has approached the County about the possibility.  Commission Chair Mike Oates notes they are just doing due diligence, and noted without any of these kind of facilities actually in place it’s hard to know what the potential pitfalls are.  In a presentation to the Commission, GeoX officials said Hood River County has proximity to a heat source, Mt. Hood, and is near a transmission line.
