Roosevelt Geothermal Plant

Utah has two geothermal electrical generation power plants, Cove Fort and Roosevelt Hot Springs, located in the central and southwestern portion of the state.  Both sites are proposing redevelopment and expansion of their respective geothermal resources. BLM anticipates that the Forest Service will also release an environmental assessment for leasing of three geothermal parcels adjacent to the Cove Fort site. 

BLM Utah plans to hold a competitive geothermal lease sale, pending finalization of leasing regulations required by changes in the Energy Policy Act.
