These geothermal power plants meet the most stringent clean air standards. According to the manufacturer, the do not emit toxic or greenhouse gases, or contribute to acid rain. With up to 100% reinjection of all fluids and gases, air-cooled condensers with no plume, a low visual profile, and non-intrusive noise, the plants are designed to have minimal environmental impact and blend in well with scenic areas. This plant technology reduces the need for transportation of fuel to conventional plants, decreasing both economic dependence on imported fuel and environmental hazards of accidental spills.
