U.S. Geothermal Acquires Development Rights for Oregon Location

U.S. Geothermal Inc., the Boise, Idaho-based developer of renewable-energy projects, acquired development rights for a 368-acre site in Oregon to evaluate the potential for new power plants.

The rights were acquired from private landowners, Malheur County and the city of Vale, U.S. Geothermal said today in a statement. Terms weren’t disclosed.

The Vale Butte site is about 12 miles (19 kilometers) east of the company’s Neal Hot Springs power plant, which was completed in August.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
