Description
A woman stand on a platform in front of the wall of an old geothermal power plant.
The United States' first geothermal power plant went into operation at The Geysers in 1921. The plant produced 250 kilowatts, which was enough electricity to light the buildings and streets at the resort. The plant, however, was not competitive with other contemporary sources of power and it soon fell into disuse.
