Description

Located in Northern California In Lake and Sonoma Counties about 90 miles north of San Francisco, Pacific Gas and Electric Company's (PG and E's) The Geysers Power Plant, which has at present fourteen units in service with a net generating capacity of 798MW, is the largest geothermal development in the world. Eight additional PG and E units now in construction, design, and planning will add 720MW of additional capacity by 1986. Figure 1 shows the location of this project and the locations of the existing and future units. This paper discusses evolution of Geysers Unit 18 through resource and project ... continued below

Description

Located in Northern California In Lake and Sonoma Counties about 90 miles north of San Francisco, Pacific Gas and Electric Company's (PG and E's) The Geysers Power Plant, which has at present fourteen units in service with a net generating capacity of 798MW, is the largest geothermal development in the world. Eight additional PG and E units now in construction, design, and planning will add 720MW of additional capacity by 1986. Figure 1 shows the location of this project and the locations of the existing and future units. This paper discusses evolution of Geysers Unit 18 through resource and project planning, licensing, design, and what is expected during construction, and startup. While many of the experiences are unique to The Geysers units, some could be applicable to other geothermal developments. This unit is one of a series of 110MW units of standardized design which are being developed to reduce the cost and improve schedules. Construction has just commenced, and it is expected to be in commercial operation in October 1982.
