How about geothermal?

Why not geothermal energy on the grid for power in the Yukon? Scientific studies say the Tintina trench, near Ross River, is the hottest geothermal deposit in Canada.

Why not geothermal energy on the grid for power in the Yukon? Scientific studies say the Tintina trench, near Ross River, is the hottest geothermal deposit in Canada. There is a possibility that 1700 MW of energy could be put on the grid which would help power proposed mines, railways etc.

There are geothermal plants on the grid all around the world, but none in Canada. There is lots of information indicating that developing geothermal energy is cheaper than other alternatives. It is a tax credit industry and can create many jobs like 24-hour greenhouses making food year round and even melt the snow on our roads.
