Wayang Windu Phase 2 Geothermal Power Project
Geothermal power plants use steam produced from reservoirs of hot water found a couple of miles or more below the Earth's surface, instead of having to use fossil fuels. The steam rotates a turbine that activates a generator, which produces electricity. It is a natural and sustainable source of energy.
Wayang Windu Phase 2 Geothermal Power Project, is a 117MW geothermal power station, which is an additional power unit to an existing grid-connected renewable power plant. The project involves the generation of power using a reliable and renewable resource in place of power generation by a more greenhouse gas intensive fuel/source. The project reduces greenhouse gas emissions through the displacement of fossil fuel electricity generation with a clean, renewable energy source.
