Geothermal is the cleanest source of electricity & heat, using less land and producing fewer emissions than any other energy source
Geothermal power is price competitive, and often lower, than other energy sources
Geothermal power projects create significantly more jobs than comparable large hydro and natural gas fired power plants
Geothermal power is the only renewable base-load option; it also has even higher capacity factors than coal, natural gas, nuclear, and large hydro
Geothermal power facilities produce useful by-product heat that can be integrated with greenhouses, fish farms, and food processing
Geothermal can provide lower cost electricity, heat, and food security to Canada's northern and remote communities
Geothermal resources are found across the country, especially in Western and Northern Canada
Geothermal power plants provide long term cost certainty which helps stabilize electricity rates
With proper heat reservoir management, geothermal power plants can run indefinitely
Canada produces 0MW of geothermal energy, despite having world class geothermal resources
