Re: Photovoltaic?

geo thermal is depletable at the rate we want to use it, unless you are in an active area... It is great for people who live amidst the smell of rotten eggs, but less so elsewhere.

Even on Lihir Island, a dormant volcano on the ring of fire, with steam venting from the ground, the geothermal generators power output dropped over time and was insufficient to run the gold mine processing plant.
