What do the words in the above headline have in common?
It’s not obvious, but if you’ve already glanced at the photos, you will have noticed billowing clouds of steam, vaporizing into the nocturnal indigo sky. What are you seeing is a natural and renewable source of energy providing 25 percent of the populations electricity needs.

Geothermal. another example of POSITIVE GREEN energy.
