California and Nevada are usually the two most talked about states regarding the geothermal energy development in United States, and rightly so, because these two states lead the nation in geothermal energy development. But this doesn't mean that other states are not ready to give geothermal power a chance, and one of these states is also Oregon.
GEA states that there is about 33 MW of geothermal power on-line in Oregon, which produced 165 GWh in 2013. This number isn't big but Oregon has plenty of room for further improvement.
The recent industrial study identified 19 projects under development in Oregon with "estimated subsurface resources of 340 MW that developers expect could provide 60 MW of additional power within the next few years if appropriate contracts are secured."
