Geothermal expansion: North Dakota sees 26 percent increase in installation
Geothermal energy caught on fire last year in North Dakota, increasing installations by 26 percent from 2010, officials said Friday.
"Obviously most of them are concentrated around the larger cities, but we've seen permit application for installation all over the state," said Lorraine Manz, a North Dakota Geological Survey geologist.
North Dakota jumped from 897 installations in 2010 to 1,135 last year. Dickinson has a total of 17, which is up about 24 percent.
