USA, Idaho: United States Senator's Staff Visits Geothermal Power Plant

On August 2nd the staff for United States Senator Jim Risch representing Idaho, toured Ormat’s Raft River geothermal plant in southeastern Idaho. Raft River was built in 2007 and provides 9 megawatts of baseload, emission-free electricity – enough to power over 7,500 Idaho homes.

Team Risch learned about the virtues that Raft River provides to grid stability in the region and the opportunity for continued development of geothermal resources in the region.
