Attendees also get the chance to see the geothermal industry in action with 5 field trips out into the surrounding area to see why Nevada is literally a hot-spot for geothermal in the USA and the world. There will also be tours of the Peppermill Resort Spa, renowned for its green policies including being the only resort in the U.S. whose heating source is totally provided from geothermal energy produced on the immediate property.
