Here is a good site for geothermal contacts:
http://geoheat.oit.edu/index.htm
Also, there is some activity with coal bed methane wells using microturbines
burning methane to provide power to the compressor.  A well needs to have
about 9000 Cubic Feet of Methane per Day to run a 30 KW microturbine from
Capstone, for more information see the following website:  microturbine.com.
Any questions.  Have fun. Mark

1.  Has anyone heard of utilizing waste steam for a greenhouse?  don't need 
the energy, just looking for warmth/humidity.  Don't know how far the steam 
could travel before losing the warmth.  Apparently this is done in the 
Netherlands??

2.   Any suggestions on capturing methane which is escaping from a small 
farm's
irrigation well?

thanks!!
