The project is comprised of two phases to provide a nominal 17.2 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy electric power. Phase 1 would involve the completion of a repowering action to replace an existing 2.5 MW net geothermal power unit with a nominal 8.6 MW power unit using existing production and injection wells. Phase 2 would involve installation of an additional nominal 8.6 MW geothermal repowering unit, and drilling of 3 new geothermal production wells and up to two new injection wells.
