Fred Henderson pointing to the primary drill site

Fred Henderson stands at the turnoff to Lost Creek Ranch, pointing to the primary drill site across the road near the two trees in the background. The geothermal power plant will be located east of this site, mostly concealed in the trees.

Geothermal energy has become a promising source of clean, renewable energy.

Chaffee County has shown potential in geothermal energy resources through hot springs long before Gov. Jared Polis stepped it to the forefront last week in taking the reigns of the Western Governor’s Association.
