We know that the sun places enough energy on our planet in one hour to handle all our electrical needs for a year. The real challenge is to find ways to capture and store this energy to use it at our convenience. Renewable Geothermal (renewgeo.com) is simply the idea of harvesting solar energy in the form of heat and injecting it into the ground to create a synthetic geothermal resource. The amount of solar heat injected in 8 hours is adequate to replenish the resource to allow for 24 hours of electrical power generation with no depletion to the reserve.
