Alternative Energy – Geothermal Energy

Alternative Energy – Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is the thermal energy which core of the earth retains. It is released in the form of hot liquid called magma through natural channels. We can install geothermal power plants on natural channels. We can also create channels after analyzing the under crust magma deposits. It is cheaper and efficient form of alternative energy. It is most environment friendly as compared to other forms of energy. We must go for it as early as possible because our current reserves of conventional energy (fossil fuels) are depleting rapidly.

Disadvantages Of Geothermal Energy

Disadvantages Of Geothermal Energy

The biggest disadvantages of building a geothermal energy plant is the time it takes to exploration the perfect land. While exploring the suitable place, researchers will do a land survey, which may take several years to complete. Thus if a company wishes to build a plant, it may have to wait for several years before the researchers reply whether the land is suitable or not.
