By John Seelmeyer

Ormat Techologies has launched an expansion project at its Steamboat Hills geothermal plant in Reno — an expansion that will reduce the plant’s visibility on the hillside just south of The Summit Sierra shopping center.

I have to ask, why are they selling the energy to California instead of using it here in Reno?
