Breaking Ground on Thermal-Gradient Wells
Today Pagosa Verde broke ground on the first of six planned thermal-gradient wells in the Pagosa Springs area. These wells gather information that will inform our next step in the process of developing geothermal resources. Temperature gradients, thermal pockets and other geothermal characteristics can be measured directly from this drilling. We are excited to have broken ground after years of effort from the Town of Pagosa Springs, Archuleta County, local thermal well owners, local property owners, the Department of Energy Geothermal Office, the Colorado Energy Office, Region 9 Economic Development and Pagosa Verde, LLC.
