(Hudson Ranch 2 geothermal plant suspends development)….Officials will now decide how to proceed.
The plant was approved for 49.9 megawatts of energy. After drilling a couple wells, however, they discovered output would fall short of what was anticipated.. Production wells for Hudson Ranch 1 were able to produce about double their requirements. Officials say this is not an uncommon problem. Not all wells produce as well as anticipated. It is something no one can predict until the actual wells are drilled. The project will remain suspended until officials decide how to proceed.
