The potential of geothermal energy to provide electricity, to heat homes, and to supply process heat for industry is vast. Among the countries rich in geothermal energy are those bordering the Pacific in the so-called “Ring of Fire,” including Chile, Peru, Colombia, Mexico, the United States, Canada, Russia, China, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Australia.
The heat in the upper six miles of the Earth’s crust contains 50,000 times as much energy as found in all the world’s oil and gas reserves combined. Despite this abundance, only 10,700 megawatts of geothermal electricity generating capacity have been harnessed worldwide
Located on the edge of the San Andreas and San Jacinto Faults, the Salton Sea was created in 1909 from an accidental release of water from the Colorado River basin.
In this time of change, Hy Power Industries stands at an advantage point of knowing that the Property it holds at the Salton Sea is known to hold the minerals attributable to producing sustainable clean energy.
The Salton Sea sits on the edge of the San Andreas fault, in a Known Geothermal Resource Area (KGRA). The surface manifestation of this property includes mud volcanoes, calcite deposits, and rhyolite mounds, all of which indicate volcanic activity beneath the property.
The Salton Sea area has exceptional geothermal resources, with one of the largest geothermal anomalies in the United States located at the southern end of the Sea in Imperial County.
The proven capacity within the cores of the two thermal anomalies is estimated at 92 MW (gross) with 90% cumulative probability…given the well-defined thermal anomalies and the existence of two deep wells, no exploration appears necessary prior to developing the field.
Dual Market for Water Treatment and Lithium Extraction Technology New technologies may unlock the economic potential in brine produced from geothermal energy.
A resource assessment was completed by GeothermEx, Inc., of Richmond, CA, of the project site in July 2009. The report concluded that “two deep wells (3,600 ft) have been drilled at Truckhaven."
The Hy Power plan to recover this energy is critical to the primary goal of creating non-polluting electrical energy and its bi products, such as Lithium, Helium and other precious minerals and gases. The Geothermal energy is the future of green energy around the clock without noxious emissions.
In recent years, the price of lithium has been rising as the demands grow for lithium batteries in cell phones, electronic gadgets, and increasingly electric cars.
From a Duck Club in the early 1900’s, the land located at the Salton Sea, County of Imperial, California, has been privately held. Hy Power Industries, Inc., plans to develop the 1,300 + acres of fee land to its fullest potential of Geothermal and Solar properties to their fullest potential, and strategic minerals and gases.
Geothermal and Solar values and mineral recovery technologies were previously unknown. Today much has changed with the ability to apply the most advanced recovery techniques to gather the power available in the Geothermal fluids that are part of the earth’s molten interior and essential to our Mandate to provide sustainable, renewable clean energy.
Our Location to the seismic fault allows conversion of the heat, which is to be converted to electrical energy. This electrical energy is expected to be sold as well as provide for our mineral and gas extraction systems and other energy produced.
The Hy Power plan to recover this energy is critical to the primary goal of creating non-polluting electrical energy and its bi products, such as Lithium, and other strategic rare earth elements (REE). The Geothermal energy is the future of green energy around the clock without noxious emissions in addition to abundant Solar potential.
Hy Power recognizes its commitment to the earth and all of us who are here now and in the future. We take seriously the development of green energy and our community that benefits by employment and an increased tax base.
To maximize our recourses an Energy Park is planned to utilize land not dedicated to Geothermal & Solar development.

Geothermal Power: Dual Market for Water Treatment and Lithium Extraction Technology New technologies may unlock the economic potential in brine produced from geothermal energy. Investing News Network, February 14, 2018.
Geothermal power is gaining ground in the global energy mix, growing by 3.4 percent in 2016 to reach 13.4 GW. By 2021, worldwide geothermal power installations are expected to reach 18.4 GW. Today, the geothermal power market is worth an estimated $7.71 billion.
The United States represents the world’s largest share (27 percent) of geothermal capacity at 3.6 GW, and most of the nation’s geothermal power plants are located in the western states where geothermal sources are close to surface. In 2016, the US produced nearly 17.4 billion kWh of electricity from geothermal power plants with 72 percent of that generation coming from California, the state with the nation’s largest geothermal resources.
Located on the edge of the San Andreas and San Jacinto Faults, the Salton Sea was created in 1909 from an accidental release of water from the Colorado River basin. Initially fresh water, salt intensified with the spillage from agricultural fertilizer from the Imperial Valley into the lake over time.
The San Andreas Fault causes earthquakes by the movement of the North American and Pacific tectonic plates sliding past each other in opposite directions. The movement causes displacement of objects on each side of the fault as stress builds up. It extends approximately 1,200 kilometers through California. The Salton Sea is located at the southern end of the San Andreas Fault.
The Salton Sea is an earthquake area, caused either by the shifting of the plates or continual movement of the underground water. Over the past year there have been approximately 811 earthquakes from approximately 1 to 3.8 kilometer in depth from the surface.
Over the years there have been numerous studies completed of the Salton Sea that included this acreage. Excerpt from 105 Page Report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, U. S. Department of Energy, “The Potential for Renewable Energy Development to Benefit Restoration of the Salton Sea: Analysis of Technical and Market Potential."
Our management and staff are dedicated to producing renewable clean energy resources. Today’s geothermal energy extraction and mineral recovery technologies far exceed the efficiencies available a few years ago. We intend to take advantage of these changes and apply the most advanced recovery techniques gathering the power available from the geothermal brines, which are heated by the lava cap beneath the property at the Salton Sea. This attribute is essential to fulfill our Mandate to provide sustainable, renewable clean energy and recovery of rare earth minerals.

A well-established form of commercial renewable energy, geothermal power generates electricity while reducing carbon emissions. The greenhouse gas emissions of geothermal power plants are on average 45 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt-hour of electricity, which is less than 5 percent of that produced by conventional coal-fired plants, according to a 2011 special report prepared for the International Panel on Climate Change.
Geothermal energy has a higher load factor than wind or solar which means that each MW of capacity produces significantly more electricity on an annual basis. Geothermal power is giving rise to new technology and new markets.
In recent years, the price of lithium has been rising as the demands grow for lithium batteries in cell phones, electronic gadgets, and increasingly electric cars. By 2020 the global market for lithium-ion batteries could jump to about $40 billion from $24 billion last year, according to Citi Research.
(Reuters) - Miners are pushing to sharply boost lithium output in the United States, as automakers in the world’s third biggest electric vehicle market are eager to cut their dependence on China for the critical battery ingredient and find more local sources.
In North Carolina, Nevada and half a dozen other states, miners are working to revive the U.S. lithium industry, once the world’s largest until it fell off in the 1990s.
Global demand for the lightweight material is expected to quadruple by 2025. Miners are betting U.S. expansion will pay off with orders from battery and vehicle manufacturers who are wary of relying too much on China, which is home to the majority of the world’s lithium processing facilities and sucks up most output of top producer Australia. Piedmont Lithium, a small mining company in the early stages of a plan to revive lithium production in North Carolina, was approached in recent months by two large U.S. automakers, Chief Executive Officer Keith Phillips said. “They are excited about the idea of securing lithium supply outside of China,” Phillips said in an interview, declining to name the automakers. Miners are also advancing lithium projects in states including Utah, California and Arkansas.
The United States produced only about 2 percent of the world’s lithium last year, from a single mine in Nevada. But it has around 13 percent of the world’s identified resources, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Higher prices could make mining profitable. In May, the United States counted lithium among 35 critical minerals, which could speed up mine permitting. “Given its close proximity and the opportunity to diversify the supply chain, we would certainly be interested in U.S.-based lithium sources - as long as it is sustainable, environmentally friendly, and competitively priced,” a spokesman for a major U.S. automaker said in an emailed response to a question. The company declined to be identified.
A resource assessment was completed by GeothermEx, Inc., of Richmond, CA, of the project site in July 2009. The report concluded that “two deep wells (3,600 ft) have been drilled at Truckhaven. IAE TRK-1, (drilled by Iceland America in 2007) and Phillips TRK-1 (drilled by Phillips Geothermal in 1982); the latter lies in the core of the northern thermal anomaly while the former lies at the fringe.
The proven capacity within the cores of the two thermal anomalies is estimated at 92 MW (gross) with 90% cumulative probability…given the well-defined thermal anomalies and the existence of two deep wells, no exploration appears necessary prior to developing the field.”
