Geothermal power development
Geothermal energy is a clean, safe and reliable energy source that has the potential to be generated right in Western Washington. Geothermal energy also is an established, well-understood technology that’s improving all the time. It has one of the smallest overall footprints for renewable energy resources.
In 2010-2011, the PUD worked with two independent geothermal consultants to evaluate geothermal feasibility in or around Snohomish County. After drilling a series of test wells, and evaluating sites with consultants, the PUD determined the temperatures and permeability conditions did not warrant additional exploration. The PUD continues to monitor geothermal developments in the region in case viable projects are identified.
