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 ( 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.
