Two Mammoth Lakes men have joined to create a new idea and a new facility. Dave Harvey and Tony Barrett want to build a geothermal interpretive center on five acres near the Mammoth Pacific Geothermal Plant.mammoth_pacific_geothermal.jpg

The new venture is called Geothermal Education Outreach or "GEO." Harvey is the CEO and Barrett, the executive director. GEO recently reached an agreement on a Letter of Intent with Mammoth Pacific to lease 5 acres of land for the project.

Barrett explained that GEO would develop a geothermal interpretive center and what he calls a living laboratory involving geothermal studies.

GEO projects a development date for the new center of 2012, after much work with Mono County agencies to achieve the goal. More later.
