The slopes of Mt. Hood volcano in Oregon appear to have sufficient low-heat geothermal energy to be tapped for industrial use in Portland, 40 miles away, says David Williams, a USGS geophysicist, speaking at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.
Water temperatures found in shallow drilling in the area are not high enough to be used to generate electricity, he said, but they may be high enough to heat buildings.
