The Salton Sea is a Known Geothermal Resource Area. CalEnergy has several geothermal plants which produce energy solely from naturally occuring geothermal steam. Deep wells tap into superheated water thousands of feet below the earth's crust and the steam powers turbines which produce electricity. The electricity is then sold to third parties to help power the grid.
