Journal Article: The Financing Of A Demonstration Geothermal Project

Abstract
The State of Hawaii started a geothermal exploration program, focused in the Kilauea East Rift Zone of the Island, in the late 1960s. The urgent demand for alternate energy created by the global petroleum disruptions of the 1970s encouraged Federal energy agencies to join the Hawaii team to drill, on the first attempt, a successful deep well, and construct a 3 MW wellhead generator. The costs were high, especially for the generator, but this timely demonstration of a viable geothermal resource has encouraged private developers.
