OIT – Geo-Heat Center #2

This project utilizes binary cycle geothermal technology custom built for the 194°F water temperature of the new supply well that is being developed by Johnson Controls.

This power plant is similar to an existing 280 kilowatt geothermal plant partially funded by Blue Sky in 2008 but utilizes 194°F water, while the existing plant uses 166°F water. The students at OIT will be able to access and research both plants to compare technologies and efficiencies.
