Additional information:
Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV), a partnership wholly owned by subsidiaries of Ormat Nevada, Inc. was issued a permit to produce a power plant of 30 megawatts of geothermal power in the Kapoho section of the Kilauea East Rift Zone (KERZ) in the Puna District of the Big Island. Under a Power Purchase Agreement with Hawaii Electric Light Company, PGV delivers an average of 25-30 megawatts of firm energy on a continuous basis, supplying approximately 20 percent of the total electricity needs of the Big Island. In helping meet the Big Island’s growing demand for electrical energy, the company uses modern re-injection technology developed in its Mainland operations to dispose of spent gases and fluids from the generating process.
