Basin View Geothermal Heating District, Klamath Falls, Oregon : conceptual design and economic feasibility study report ( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The findings of a feasibility study performed for Basin View Heating District in Klamath Falls, Oregon are reported. The purpose of the study is to determine the physical, economic, and political feasibility of establishing a geothermal heating district to provide space heat to housing units in the Basin View Development of Klamath Falls. Of the several systems considered, all are physically feasible. The project is politically feasible if the owner compiles with governmental requirements. Economic feasibility is based on considerations of money value rates, tax rates and expected rates of return, which are dependent on government and money markets. For analysis a money value rate of 21% and an owner's marginal tax rate of 35% were adopted
Geothermal feasibility study for City of Sonoma, California : four municipal buildings ( Book )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The City of Sonoma, located in the Northern California Wine Country, consists of several buildings which are old and historic in nature. Four of these buildings, (which shall be designated 1 through 4), totaling approximately 31,150 square feet, shall be evaluated to determine the economic feasibility of converting the existing Environmental Control Systems to water source heat pumps utilizing a natural Geothermal heat sink. Presently, on the State Park's site, there exists a warm water well which produces 250 gallons per minute of water at 73°F. Based on utility rates forecast by Pacific Gas and Electric, installation of heat pumps in the City buildings at Sonoma does not appear to be attractive. The economic evaluation was continued until the year 2000. Pacific Gas and Electric is re-evaluating its rate forecasts and will issue a new forecast in April 1982. The high capital cost is due to retrofitting the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning equipment for the existing buildings. For a new installation, the concept of using heat pumps should be re-evaluated

Direct use geothermal applications for brazed plate heat exchangers ( )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Brazed plate heat exchanger were placed in three geothermal fluids (Klamath Falls, OR; Boise, ID; and Pagosa Springs, CO) to determine the effect of H₂S on braze material. Based on subsequent analysis, it appears that the rate of corrosion of the braze material is much slower than corrosion of copper tube materials in the same fluids. Minimum expected life of the heat exchangers based on these corrosion rates is reported to be 12 years in fluids of less than 1 ppm H₂S and 10 years in fluids of less than 5 ppm. Based on these expected lives, and using a 3% inflation rate and 8% discount rate, brazed plate heat exchangers are a clear economic choice in which the capital cost is 50% or less of the cost of a plate and frame heat exchanger for the same duty. Due to their single pass design, brazed plate heat exchangers are generally limited to approach temperatures of 10° or greater. Size limitations restrict applications to 100 gpm and/or 200 ft² heat transfer surface area

Marketing the Klamath Falls geothermal district heating system by Kevin Rafferty ( )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The new marketing strategy for the Klamath Falls system has concentrated on offering the customer an attractive and easy to understand rate structure, reduced retrofit cost and complexity for his building along with an attractive package of financing and tax credits. Initial retrofit costs and life-cycle cost analysis have been conducted on 22 buildings to date. For some, the retrofit costs are simply too high for the conversion to make sense at current geothermal rates. For many, however, the prospects are good. At this writing, two new customers are now connected and operating with 5 to 8 more buildings committed to connect this construction season after line extensions are completed. This represents nearly a 60% increase in the number of buildings connected to the system and a 40% increase in system revenue
Geothermal energy in Montana site data base and development status ( )

A short description of the state's geothermal characteristics, economy, and climate is presented. More specific information is included under the planning regions and site specific data summaries. A brief discussion of the geothermal characteristics and a listing of a majority of the known hot springs is included. The factors which influence geothermal development were researched and presented, including: economics, financing, state leasing, federal leasing, direct-use technology, water quality laws, water rights, and the Major Facility Siting Act.

Washington a guide to geothermal energy development ( )
2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A brief overview is given of the geological characteristics of each region of the state as they relate to potential geothermal development.

Requirements and techniques needed for drilling deeper higher temperature exploration and production wells are presented. Electrical generation, direct utilization, and indirect utilization are reviewed. Economic factors of direct use projects are presented. A general guide to the regulatory framework affecting geothermal energy development is provided. The general steps necessary to gain access to explore, develop, distribute, and use geothermal resources are outlined. (MHR)
Pilot fruit drier for Los Azufres geothermal field, Michoacan, Mexico ( )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) has a Division in charge of the exploration of a geothermal reservoir located in Los Azufres, State of Michoacan. At present, CFE is only using the steam of the wells and rejecting the hot water that comes off associated with the steam. Based on a trip to the Los Azufres geothermal field in December of 1992, a design for a pilot geothermal fruit drier was undertaken for CFE. The details of the geothermal field and the local fruit production are detailed
