Landmark Legislation Could put Geothermal back on track for California
by: Leslie Blodgett, GEA
June 09, 2014
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The California Assembly is up next to consider a 500-megawatt (MW)-by-2024 geothermal procurement bill. This follows the May 28 passage of S.B. 1139 by the state Senate in a 21-11 vote. Electricity procured under this new geothermal bill would be separate from RPS-counted electricity. Industry, utilities, government agencies, and environmentalists say this bill is an answer that solves many time-sensitive problems at once. Some opponents, as stated in the May 28 Senate floor analysis, asked whether a mandate for geothermal in the case of this bill is fair and cost-effective. But geothermal companies working in California find fairness to be something they have been lacking and see this bill as a potential way to get geothermal valued properly.
BOISE, IDAHO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- U.S. Geothermal Inc. (NYSE MKT:HTM)(TSX:GTH) a leading renewable energy company focused on the development, production, and sale of electricity from geothermal energy, is pleased to announce that Dennis Gilles, CEO, will be a featured presenter at the 3rd Annual Marcum Microcap Conference on Thursday May 29, 2014 in New York City at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. Mr. Gilles will present a corporate overview and business update highlighting the strong 2013 and first quarter 2014 corporate performance, as well as a summary of the exciting growth opportunities the company is pursuing.
The presentation is scheduled to begin at 9:00am EDT and will be webcast live and available for replay for up to 90 days using the following link http://wsw.com/webcast/marcum2/htm or on the home page of our corporate website www.usgeothermal.com.

Geothermal power production has a positive impact on local economies, and creates significantly more jobs per megawatt than natural gas.
Geothermal power has a smaller land footprint than most other energy sources, particularly when compared with other renewables.
Geothermal power has very low emission levels. Binary plants produce near-zero GHG emissions while flash and dry steam plants represent a significant reduction compared to fossil fuel based generation.
Geothermal power’s established history of consistent output demonstrates a level of reliability unmatched by other renewables and fossil fuel based generation.

REGIONAL LOCATION MAP
The Company successfully acquired a geothermal concession in the Republic of Guatemala. The concession consists of 24,710 acres (100 square kilometers) and is located 14 miles southwest of Guatemala City, the capital. Nine wells with depths ranging from 560 to 2,000 feet (170 to 610 meters) were drilled in the El Ceibillo resource area within the concession area during the l990s, with a few of those wells having adequate temperature and flow to support a direct use application. Six of the wells have measured reservoir temperatures in the range of 365 to 400°F (185 to 204°C). Fluid sample analysis and the mineralogy associated with drill cuttings suggest the existence of a deeper, higher permeability reservoir with temperature potential of 410 to 526°F (210 to 274°C).
Although the market for different forms of energy is large and dominated by very powerful players, we perceive our industrial competition to be independent power producers and in particular those producers who provide “green” renewable power. Our definition of green power is electricity derived from a source that does not pollute the air, water or earth. Sources of green power, in addition to geothermal, include wind, solar, biomass and run-of-the river hydroelectric. A number of states have instituted renewable portfolio standards (“RPS”) that require utilities to purchase a minimum percentage of their power from renewable sources. For example, RPS statutes in California require 33% renewable and Nevada require 20% renewable. According to the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy department, utilities in 34 states nationwide are providing their customers with the opportunity to purchase green, renewable power through premium pricing programs. As a result, we believe green power is an important sub-market in the broader electric market, in which many power purchasers are increasing or committing to increase their investments. Accordingly, the conventional energy producers do not provide direct competition.
In the Pacific Northwest there are currently only two geothermal facilities, both operated by the Company. There are a number of wind farms, as well as biomass and run-of-the river hydroelectric facilities. However, the Company believes that the combination of greater reliability and baseload generation from geothermal, access to infrastructure for deliverability, and a low "full life" cost will allow it to successfully compete for long term power purchase agreements.
