Description:This paper summarizes the results of a recent study the Facilities Improvement Report performed with funding by the Public Interest Energy Research PIER program of the California Energy Commission CEC. The Facilities Improvement Report describes potential improvements to 45 existing power plants in 7 currently producing geothermal fields in California. The improvements are of two general types improvements in resource supply and improvements in surface facilities. To resolve inconsistencies in reported plant capacities, distinctions are made between original capacity electromechanical capacity 2005 capacity which takes into account resource limitations and actual annual average power.
