Oregon is leading the nation in geothermal energy development.  The state has 19 projects in operation, under construction or in planning.  Karl Gawell, Executive Director of the Geothermal Energy Association, says state government is setting the stage to allow the exploration. Geothermal projects in Oregon currently make enough electricity to power a city the size of McMinnville.  Gawell says that in two to three years that'll increase to power a city the size of Eugene.  The largest project under construction is near the Newberry Crater south of Bend.
