An Idaho company is exploring an Oregon hot springs as a possible source of geothermal energy for power generation.

U.S. Geothermal of Boise is weighing the potential of Neal Springs upstream from Bully Creek Reservoir in Eastern Oregon, according to a published report. The company proposes to pump 300-degree water out of the ground to run turbines that generate electricity before injecting cooler water back into the ground to be reheated.

The proposed geothermal plant would provide 10 to 12 jobs.The project could funnel much-needed cash into Malheur County while providing a renewable source of energy.
