Abstract:"The State of Hawaii started a geothermal exploration program, focuses in the Kilauea East Rift Zone of the Island, in the late 1960's. The urgent demand for alternate energy created by the global petroleum disruptions of the 1970's encouraged Federal agency energy agencies to join the Hawaii team to drill, on the first attempt, a successful deep well, and construct a 3 megawatt wellhead generator. The costs were high, especially for the generator, but his timely demonstration of a viable geothermal resource has encouraged private developers."
